Little Bear Westsail 32 refit: Tiller Rebuild Blog #137

Arrrrr me hearties. Welcome aboard.

Rebuilding the tiller was a couple of days worth of work. First I had to deal with the delamination problem, then I sanded it down and gave it a coat of epoxy to protect it from the weather.

As always fair winds, following seas, and God bless.

Arrrrr me hearties. Welcome aboard.

The tiller on board Little Bear is a beautiful piece of wood. Unfortunately, time & weather have taken their toll. The tiller has actually delaminated.

It would not do to go to sea with a defective tiller, so I take the time to rebuild it and make it strong again.

As always fair winds, following seas, and God bless.
