      Comments about Laminated Replacement Tillers:

      I appreciate the knee room the slight rise of the tiller has over the previous which was straight and had screws sticking out the bottom for an old tiller extension.
      Comfortable shape to hold when not using the tiller extension.
      Looks good, too with the alternating woods.
      Perfect for a 32 year old boat.

          This tiller is adequate for use until I can obtain/make the correct one. The varnish finish is quite delicate and dings easily. I had to laminate shims on the end to make the 1.5 inch width.

            Great quality and workmenship. It was a couple of inches longer then the original but this proved to be an advantage not a hinderance. [...] It was tested two days later when I ended up in the worst storm I had ever been in. It has proved to be a beautiful addition to my boat.

            Of course it will fit. It's wood!

              Comments about Laminated Replacement Tillers:

              If you have a drill press the bolt hole is no problem. To fit the receiver on my rudder stock (Precision 23), I had to shave a little off both sides of the mounting block end. Easy to do with a table saw and a fence. Then I added another coat of UV resistant varnish to protect the exposed wood and add another layer to the rest of the tiller. I took a piece of delaminated teak veneer with me in case I needed a very thin shim to snug up the mounting when installed. Last one lasted 7 years. Looking for 10 from is one!
