It is a development of the system originally devised by John Simmons (the original owner of P21/30 in her incarnation as "Lady-be-Good")
The four pictures show:
- "Uphaul" shows the line goes into the stock, round a pulley inside > somewhere and comes out through a hole in the tiller. By taking a turn round the cleat and working the tiller up and down you can lift the rudder quite easily.
- "Port" shows the downhaul tackle and clamcleat. When the rudder is down the blocks are closer together.
- "released" shows the clamcleat in the released position allowing the rudder to come up. It's normally held in close to the tiller by the white/blue bungey.
- "Starboard" shows the adjustable bungey that goes round a pulley let into the tiller and holds the cleat in until you hit something.
