Connecting Flybridge Steering

by Mike
(NB Canada)

I would like to connect my steering and transmission to a flybridge.

I would like to be able to lock out whatever control I am not using.

I wouldn't want to be docking from the fly bridge and have a kid down below decide that he's gonna dock the boat.

You wouldn't want to lock the steering when you go to sea any more than a pilot would lock the steering he wasn't using.

You may need the lower station in a hurry only to find it locked!

As the other poster stated, if you have to worry about children steering from below, wouldn't you also have to worry about other hazards (falling overboard, throwing switches, plugging the head, etc)?

Old school Mike, yes you can have a bi-pass put in on the wheel, a lock on the controls but you need control of your crew, that comes with that trust, touch this and you may be not be here again.

It's all about the captain, then there's teaching the best approach.

There are card controls that only work with the card, not hard to install and run on low voltage but need maintenance, like if its electric it need agrees.

Electrolysis is your only problem in this application.

Good luck Mike
