Transom Hung Rudders KD860

Post by craig andrews » Tue Sep 14, 2010 4:22 am

Hi Guys,

Im building a KD860 which has been designed to carry T/H rudders and tiller steering but I find wheel steering far more comfortable. My ? is how do I retain transom hung rudders with a tie rod and fit wheel steering either hydraulic or cable?


Regards Craig

theres one way, cheap bit of sail track ,cheap car adapted to suit and drive it with a morse cable and teleflex helm, or a cheapo old cord wound sterring hub and a pulley at each end.
