Emergency Tiller System & life jackets

Hi All

Need to set up emergency tiller system for coding a ribcraft with susuki 250hp. Can any one provide any details/photos or contacts of who they have had fabricate these for them.

Also has anyone got any opinion on KRU life jackets for using for customers?

Thanks

A maybe I am wrong - I believe paddle /boat hook Rope & Duct Tape ! is what most folk claim to be emergency tiler ? not going at any speed ?

I could see racket strapping something over outboard working too...

others will know more!

I can't get the images now but we have always had a stainless bar made up which is attached to engine yolk with a pin , this is very secure and clears coding requirements
Should be able to get images by Sunday

The surveyors we use are happy with disconnecting the existing steering (cable or hydraulic) and attaching some sort of arm to the engine to use as a tiller. As Scott suggests, a paddle strapped (rather than duct tape for me) to the engine cover has been acceptable up to now and actually works fairly well

Agree we were passed historically with paddle and ratchet strap for engine, but I saw I would damage expensive hood so for a small cost had the attachment made and easily fitted with split pin

Have used Kru life jackets for years, really good, easy to fit and they wear well
