Interesting !
I have a maramu but noticed the hole in the art cabin roof and assumed it must be for a emergency tiller
I've yet to find mine onboard though 😞
All the best

Hi Mark. On our 1980 Sharki the emergency tiller shaft fits through the cavity at the rear middle of the aft cabin roof. The cap just lifts off. Then the shaft travels through the ceiling and into a cavity under the aft cabin mattress and through to a receptor on the rudder shaft.

The tiller comes in two parts with the arm extending over the cabin roof to the cockpit.

We store ours in the cockpit lazarette for quick access.

Hope you can find yours.

Can anybody tell me what the emergency tiller on a 1984 Sharki looks like and is fitted? Were the boats equipped with one from new? How was it used? If you have a photo that would helpful as I think I have to make one.
