Reply To: Tiller Construction
I have a 32 mm dia aluminium tube for a tiller available – about £5. Epoxy is not specially good on anodised alloy so I fix with screws, glue and epoxy/glass. You could make a sheet metal “hood” to put over the rudder to slot the tiller into. Can’t just think of a proprietary one.
Carbon tube is an option but you need the right type of tube. When wood was the norm, we often used to make the tiller as a yoke at the rudder end to make them stronger. Tillers pushed into sockets need to be ash or similar wood to handle the side loads.
If you want, you can send me a pic of your rudder to [email protected]
