J46 Emergency Steering

A carbon fiber emergency steering system for a J46.
This emergency steering system was done for a CSR Marine www.csrmarine.com customer.  It had to be able to have the base installed by cold, numb guys in a few seconds.  Then the rudder slides in.  It is all carbon fiber so is very light.
