- OK - right you are! I did not notice that photo. I thought you were
referring to the rod extension in the cockpit.
Hard to say which would work best. Line steering would probably mean you
always have to stay seated or crouched down when steering. With an
extended tiller like that you can steer while standing upright in the
slot - which may give a better view forward when close manoeuvring.
Perhaps a removable or extendible tiller extension. I see in another
photo were Mike is sitting quite far forward when soloing so a steering
line would work as well. It does involve some sheaves, fairleads, spring
and tensioner etc.,which makes a tiller extension a lot simpler.
