Tiller extension


Recommended Posts

My 4.5 came with this flash looking rudder extension bar.

First sail produced a small diaster when the bar decided to let go at the penultimate moment.

So it is pear shaped outside and has a raided ridge inside to lock when turned.

Prbably made of hdpe which is a wax and adhesives usually don't work.

With nothing to lose ,I have drizzled a fine layer of epoxy along the raised section where wear is evident.

So far so good... a bit of filing off high spots, the epoxy seems to be holding and it now seems to have plenty of bite.

When the wet season takes a breathe we will test it on the water and see what happens.
