I went out sailing today with my Bayfield 25 the wind wasn't too strong blowing about 15 - 20 Kph, and about 10 mins into it the tiller yoke broke in half. After rushing to drop the sails because I had no steering control, I noticed that the part that attaches the tiller to the rudderpost is what actually broke. Itís a fantastic boat a bit slow but thatís what I like. Does anyone know where I can find a replacement part or am I going to have to fabricate I new part from scratch.
Looks like it should be easy to make. A couple of SS plates with a sturdy spacer. Spend some time with a grinder and round the edges and polish. Or if you can find a bronze plate thick enough. I won't have that nice cast look but should be sturdy and serviceable.
