Well, Brent you beat me to it!

I just logged in to post about this. I think this is a really clever idea and solves something that has been nagging the back of my mind for a while. Not anywhere close to the tiller I haven't had to think about it but you've likely done it for me.

One frequent use of my pocketship will be for afternoon cocktail cruises with 4 people. I've been thinking at some point it'd be nice to figure out how to get that tiller out of the way somewhat during light cruising. Thank your Pops for me Brent!
