Edson Steering Brake


The Edson Wrap-Around Friction Brake for pedestal steerers is designed to dampen the action of the steering wheel while underway. Especially handy on long runs or when operating under power, this brake can be used to secure the wheel under most conditions and will hold the boat on course while the helmsperson trims a sheet or goes below. The brake was designed to be overidden by the helmsman under all circumstances - it is not a brake lock. Although you may be able to turn the wheel while the brake is applied, it should hold the rudder in place
