A sailboat tiller extension enables crew to steer from an offset position.Applications
These devices enable the crew to steer positioned to windward or hiked out, particularly useful on racing boats and multihulls. On cruising vessels, they offer the option of steering from a more comfortable position.Technologies
Most extensions consist of a straight aluminum tube, sometimes telescopic, attached to the tiller via a ball joint. The end is covered by a rubber grip or has a circular handle, affording better purchase. Certain telescopic models have a button on the handle for one-handed length adjustment.How to choose
A long, non-telescopic extension is advisable on catamarans. This enables crew to steer from the windward hull and to easily change sides when coming about. On monohulls, a telescopic model can be adjusted to the crew's arm length or steering position.
