We have just launched a jib sheet to tiller self steering gear. Basically the jib sheet winch is mounted on a hinged platform. The tension in the jib sheet pulls it forward, and this is balanced by a spring made from shock cord pulling in the opposite direction. Luffs and puffs are transmitted to the tiller via a linkage. It works superbly on all points of siling and almost all wind condiotions. It even works with a spinnaker. More details on our website: www.steersman.net
