That how-2 article on tiller clutches is especially useful for the sail and oar crowd.

Thanks!

You are referring to the latest edition of our hosts excellent publication?

Its a great idea for those who use traditional tillers. Many of the Sail-and-Oar™ crowd, however, have gone to push-pull style steering, which allows us to get further forward in our fine-ended boats. Many have crafted ways of rendering the steering stationary, but I've yet to see a "Best idea" or a commercially available one.

My personal jury is still out on push-pull. I need more hand's-on experience with it than what I have done so far...

If a push-pull is too difficult consider using a steering wheel from a MacGregor 26.

If it eliminates slop I may try just that.
