wobberly1 Posted January 15, 2008 Report Share Posted January 15, 2008 Hi, I've got some problems with my rudders that I'd like to fix and was hoping for some advice on the best way to go. My problems are: - the tiller arm on one of my rudders has broken, - the rivets on hifield lever on one rudder have broken and it is now attached by hose clamps - ditto for the clip that holds the hifield lever on both sides - I'd like to organise it so that I can lock the rudders partially down as I do a lot of sailing where the water is too shallow to start with the rudders all the way down. - I'd like to be able to pull the rudder down without having to wander across the tramp and face the wrong way while I'm doing it too. First should I get an official maricat tiller bar or is it easy to get some suitable al tube and bend it? How about the rudder lock down. I was thinking of trying to rig up a rope and rubber loop arrangement that I could cleat in at different depths but the new pivmatic kit looks ok. Does anyone have this? Whats it like. Does anyone have any other easy to build setups? thanks for you help Martin Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
