Re: Tiller Length




I would suggest that anyone thinking of shortening their tiller get a spring
loaded pin to replace the tiller bolt, and then make a shorter tiller out of
some cheap material, such as a fir 2X4. and a new tiller cap. Keep the
original tiller on board and try the shorter one to see if you like it. If
you like the shorter one , either have one built or make one out of teak or
oak. Keep the longer one on board for when the wind pipes up and you need
more leverage.
