Do you remember a short while ago some photos we published of a fabulous looking restoration by Corby Yachts. They had a tiller design (above) quite reminiscent of the 505 in Paul Elvstrom’s knockout best seller, Expert Dinghy Racing, in 1965…. I have a feeling it is known as a pylon design tiller.
Peter Card (FF 3144) had a look at doing this again for his boat. You’ll see the photos below. Peter has done it from Stainless Tubing. I’ve asked Peter if he can get a weight of it for us, or maybe just the comparison with a wooden one. If the stainless tubing on bicycles is anything to go by, you can make it to end up quite light.
See what you make of these….
