Re: Amel 54 Emergency Tiller Storage Location

On Carango we use the little shelf on the forward bulkhead of the lazarette we drilled through the bulkhead into the rear cabin taking care that we drilled through so the holes were behind the ledge above the head of the double berth and out of sight. it was not too difficult and a works well.

Hi Paul;


I did think about this issue. My thoughts were that there are so few cases of the tiller being needed in a 54, as far as my research showed, that the location allocated by Amel would be adequate. In the unlikely event of a steering issue, we would be well motivated to remove the items required to get to the tiller. We may revisit this issue, if we hear sufficient arguments to the contrary.

Hi all,


For the A54 I have yet to hear of any successful remedy to the problem of emergency tiller storage, and so far mine has been lying at the bottom of the stern lazarette which is far from ideal. Having just tried to figure out a good place I can see that on the narrow shelf top forward part of the stern lazarette there is a good place (see attached photo) but it needs something to keep in in place. Does any one know how thick the GRP is there before I start drilling?
