I needed to modify the tiller bar that I built previously because the newest tillers had more curvature to them and were thus closer together at the ends. The new tiller pins were located about 2” inboard of the previous holes.

Pin Difference

I drilled the new holes and trimmed the tiller bar to fit. I also added epoxy with graphite to the pin holes and underside of the tiller bar.


I built a tiller extension out of an oak dowel with a handle cut from lamination scraps. The original boat had a tiller extension and I re-used the original hardware from it.
