Does Your Sailboat Have a Tiller?

By Sailingguide

If your sailboat has a tiller, you already know what can happen if you have to let go of the tiller for a moment to do a sail adjustment, grab something to drink, or do anything else. Typically the boat quickly loses its heading and either turns up into the wind and stalls with sails flapping or falls off the wind and goes out of control. Many sailors buy a Tiller-Tamer to prevent this problem by locking down the tiller for a moment, but you can save the cost by easily making an effective control device of your own.
