Thanks,

Yes coding insisted an alternative steering. I had this attachment made (middle front of engine below cowling catch) and then a stainless bar attaches to it and is held by pin, Works on 250 but would not like to use it for too long

hi ian

so have you got a free flow valve on your hydraulics?

our surveyor is fine with a paddle.

Hi No I believe standard fit for Yam with hydraulics, but if it fails I have the ability to attach a tiller to the engine , the main issue would be the prop torque if revs were up, but the system works and would hopefully allow me to hold a course or get out of danger whilst awaiting other support.
Again it highlights the difference of each surveyor and their opinions of the rules. I like what I have as it will be easier to fit and hold then a paddle and also you would need to tie the engine in a "straight on position" I think?

Thanks C2........

I have now spoken to a local fabricator who is going to make me up a bracket along similar lines.........

It would have been really useful to have a paddle like that which we use on the Atlantic (which can be seperated to use as a tiller), but the RNLI are currently recalling spare paddles to stores as they no longer have a manufacturer for them (I tried to find out who made them so i could purchase one direct).....

Will now be getting a tiller made up at the same time, to be fixed to the A frame.

Dan

Its only the paddles that have the red mark on that you could use as a tiller though?

If your in a situation where you have to use it in anger, chances are cutting the hoses wouldn't be too much of an issue.

Same boat

HI Dan,
Just got myself a Ocean 675 same as yours with no engine, have ordered a 115 optimax and was worried about not being enough but if you get that with a 90 it should be good

Nice boat, a good bit cleaner than mine!!
