Update: I bought and refurbed a Tartan 34C, cruising full-time. The TillerMaster(s) have done OK, and since they were paid for, we kept using them. Recently, in no-wind conditions, a wave roll pushed me over the tiller and I bent the smooth SS rod that the jack screw goes into/out of. Does anyone know how to separate the smooth rod from the jack screw? I have a spare, but can't figure out the disassembly.
And if anyone has a new or nearly new unit they'd like to sell cheap
, I'm a buyer. Thanks!
