You could measure the tubing used for emergency tillers on wheel boats. Your guess of 1-3/4" by 1/8" wall sounds similar to what my Pearson 28-2 (twice the displacement of your Olson 30) uses, so that should be more than enough.

If you can figure out the max load on the rudder head you can also use beam deflection calculations to figure out the appropriate tiller tubing size.
