If there is access through the deck for an emergency tiller you should be able to rig a tiller. I did my Pearson 35 using hollow bronze tube machined to the diameter of the rudder shaft, 1 3/4" in my case, with a solid 1 1/2" rod at the other end to take the tiller head. Used a 2" thick piece of UHMPE plastic bolted to the cockpit sole as a top seal and bearing for the shaft.

If you want to explore it, have a 1 7/8" tiller head I'm not using. Could be machined to 2" if needed. Also a 1 5/8"
