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?
