Re: Steeringwheel

Judy and Bill aboard SV BeBe <yahoogroups@...>

I added a photo to this album:
Helm, Cockpit & Lazarette
Anything located in these areas

You can direct link to it here:

We added this "eye" to be able to have a secure & easy place to tether-to while at the helm. It also serves as a good place to tie the helm. Note the whipping around the leather...this protects the leather from chafing. A small piece of bungee cord with hooks works well to stabilize the wheel, and can be quickly unhooked.

Hope this helps.

Hi all,
could anybody give me advice how to prevent the rudder/steeringwheel from turning when we are on anchor and in a swell? On my old boat there was a brake at the steering column to fix the wheel.
many thanks
