Lashing the helm on a Super Maramu

Hi everyone,

Our 1990 SM23 seems to have no obvious way of securing the helm. I'm curious what others do to lock or lash the helm in a given position - for heaving-to, lying at anchor, sailing to windward, etc.

My options at the moment are securing to the fresh water filler, using the autopilot, or installing some other hardware to do the job. Is it possible the boat wasn't designed with the intention of ever locking the helm? Has anyone else had this issue on their Amel and come up with a good solution?

Thanks,
Mike & Hannah
