    I'm still struggling to understand how it works (DUH!) Is it only effective when using the mizzen of a ketch? Does the boom have to overhang the transome?

    There is a book about methods of self steering one way might be to rig a jigger or light bowsprit beyond the existing one and set a small jib that will connect with the tiller and apply force which you counteract with shock cord etc to balance.

    Thanks Wansworth, I will take a look at the book. Yes the idea of it working from a jib is interesting. I think I'm going to have a bit of a mess around to see what I can come up with

    off topic

    But

    Pelagic self steering has gyro

    plus compass and is less than $1000 US

    Waterproof too

    unlike those that shall not be named European tiller pilots
