Quick question for you.
I've got a Hunter
22 and I have my tiller off because i've dug some rot
out, re-epoxied some of the wood that was cracking at the seam. Looking online for replacements
just because my woodwork is fairly crappy(as seen in the picture) and Id like to just keep my options open going forward.
The reason for me questioning is the rudder
has a bolt through it and the tiller handle has a U dug out of it on the end that slides over the bolt into the frame with 2 pieces of metal on the side.
While looking online at replacements
the end of the tillers do not have this cut out and instead look to be completely solid.
Is my tiller handle maybe seen better days and had some water
intrusion because of this cut in the back?
If I end up getting a new tiller with a solid butt, is it better to dig it out like this? or just drill 1 hole and epoxy
seal it and take a bit longer to setup by having to put the bolt in and out to remove the tiller as needed?
Pic attached for so you can see what I'm talking about.
