Tiller Tamer, Tiller Stay, Bungees

I have the standard bungee cord under the rear decking for tiller slight taming. I wonder if any of you have installed either a Davis Tiller Tamer, a Tiller Stay, or just beefed up the bungee size, or anything other wizardry custom gear. Thank you very much, Jim Ps I did an evaluation of a potential cabin switch to a Precision 16.5 but after boarding one, checking out the gear, sailing on friend's, I decided I love my Scot even more than I did before. And my wife has become more convinced how great a boat it is. It also prompted me to further improve it.....like a better single handing tiller control item. Jim FS #5372 Blacksburg, VA

Since no one added to this subject, I just ordered some stuff I needed from Newportnautical.com and did not get a Davis Tiller Tamer. I did call Harry Carpenter and he said folks just twist the bungee into a loop to hold the tiller. So I will just experiment with adjusting the tension of the bungee for best/easy twisting into a loop and holding the tiller....mine is too tight now. I didn't like the idea of a unit on top of the tiller anyway plus having to put clam cleats on the rear deck on both sides of the tiller so the tiller tamer rope makes a 90 deg angle.....just in the way of getting to the motor on the port side and the swim ladder etc on the starboard side Jim FS #5372 Blacksburg, VA

I also realized that if you have a tiller extension and it is held in a clip when not used normally screwed into the top of tiller rearward, a Tiller Tamer would be out of the question on top of the tiller. Glad I did not order one. Jim FS #5372 Blacksburg, VA

I purchased a Tiller tender kit (shock cord under aft deck lip # 380200) from the Flying Scot Sailboat Store and am very happy with it. One wrap with the shock cord and the tiller stays in place. If not use it retracts under the deck and is out of sight. SImple but effective!
