Olli Väänänen replied to Olli Väänänen's discussion wheel steering
"Actually, I did some measuring again, and realised that 35 degrees does not make the tiller go that far over the side after all!Now I measured the travel of the tiller bar, and I figured it would be 180 cm (six feet) from one extreme to the other.…"

"Olli, Although they reference the plans sheet, I dot think it shows much of the rudder detail. But I will look at it again to be sure.  On the 38 the steering line runs around a drum with several turns for friction. The drum is connected…"

"One more thing: what would the maximum rudder angle be? I realised that if the rudder is turned 35 degrees, the tiller connection bar nearly touches the rear deck, and the tiller protrudes very far outside the hull. Actually the tiller hits the wall…"

"Thank you, I really do appreciate this (I've been checking my e-mail every few hours in anticipation of your message!). I have been thinking of attaching the ropes to the tiller connection bar, too. But my problem is that in my present wheel…"

Ian R replied to Olli Väänänen's discussion Up and down movement of the rudders
"Thanks for your info, boatsmith- My rudders work pretty well, a bit tight at the extreme tiller-over, but with no clanking as you say which is a notable plus. I think there will be significant wear on the timber parts because they are clearly closer…"

"Also we use 6mm line for our small boat rudder lashings"
