      Carinthia Blue sounds a great colour. Is it the proper name of that smokey blue which was a Campernicholson favourite? Or is it some other blue altogether?

You mentioned that you had fitted the Buck Algonquin tiller arm (less cost) but the photo looks more like an Edson tiller arm. Am I mistaken, do Buck Algonquin make different models, or did you have problems with it and have to retro fit the Edson?

It seems that Edson are the only manufacturer that makes one where the tiller arm bracket itself disassembles so it can be then fitted insitu around the rudder stock.
