- My boat has been on a mooring for a few years now. It seems a boat
broke loose catching my rudder and snapping my tiller. Any ideas
where to get a good replacement?
Gary_flo I read you got a new one last year. Do you remember which
one you got?
Thanks for the help,
I wouldn't skimp on a tiller, especially if you sail anywhere there
may be rough weather.
For all my years of being on ships in the Navy, for all the cabinets
and furniture I've built, for all the places I've sailed, I still buy
commercial tillers. (I could make my own, but it takes too long.)
Tillers are generally made of laminates, which is layers of wood
glued together. The laminate is far stronger than regular wood, and
the fact that it is laminated together allows the manufacturer to
form the handle into a more comfortable shape.
One of the worst imaginable scenarios would to be in bad weather
without a means to steer your boat.

- Hi Jill,
I just happened to read the digest today. I got a new tiller AND
rudder from idasailors:
