Right, Jim Cate. Same thing caught me and caused me to log in for the first time in years.
I too have a 6' long tiller and wish to make a wooden one. The best thing about my aluminum
one is that it is in 2 pieces, separating at the 30" point, or right where the monitor
vane lines attach. Pretty spiffy to be able to clear out that cockpit-sweeping piece. Looks ugly though. On my island, on the Salish Sea, I have a large Yew tree. I'm going to build a tiller from that. Someday.
