    Someone did the work so the lines ran above deck.

    Hi Ron,
    I think the latest version was by Graham (of rowing, smoking crew fame!)
    He had the same problem; rudder post angled to the deck and tiller above deck on his Gaff cutter.

    A while ago there were one or two others with above deck chain drive to the helm.
    On steam tugs I think.
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    πŸ“ Request ideas from you

    Here is what I have, a rudder post that comes up through the hull at an unusual angle.
    I have seen that some people use elaborate pulleys and cables. But, there must be another solution?

    Please share your ideas.

    Thanks,

    Ron

    Someone posted how they used pulleys and line to solve this problem but I do not know who did. Do you recall?

    Hi there Ron

    At the moment one of the only things I can think of, apart from using pulleys and springs, is a 2 gear set up - meaning the gears are of equal diameter and teeth - one mounted on the rudder shaft and the other would be mounted on the servo. I was thinking of using maybe mini-servos - the ones that aeroplane guys use - when controlling the flaps in the wings. This setup I was thinking would be the servo to the side of the shaft, mounted at the same angle,. I have been googling the web to see if I can find anyone else who has actually fitted a radio into this model and see how they have done it - and also what size the model is. Its very hard to tell from the photographs.

    Here is a scribble I have done - you may be able to follow it.

    John

    This is an older Billings kit. Not a scratch build this time, rather nice after all other boats lately. I kept patterns of the parts.
