Serena’s Tiller – Part II

Sailboats are a delight and joy to experience. But, part of owning one is the constant maintenance issues involved. For the last year Serena has not be guest ready due to a badly delaminated tiller. I finally got its replacement fitted and installed. Its been quite a drama for something so simple as a chunk of wood.

You can find the gory details of the entire expereience here.

New tiller.

Shiny new tiller with freshly drilled hole needed to attach it to the rudder's head stock.

Old tiller

Badly delaminated old tiller. Yes, that delamination happened in one winter.
