A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts
Hi everyone, my Tiki 26 has a cracked, rotten tiller. I've reinforced it temporarily, to get me home (see photos).
I guess water got in through the bolt-hole. (I loosened the bolt for the photos; it's usually tighter).
I don't have the original plans. I'm open to ideas on the best way forward. If you think rebuilding a completely-new tiller is the best route, does anyone have the relevant drawing that they could scan for me?
What type of wood is recommended?
Alternatively, but not as good, maybe just tape and glass would be strong enough?
Thanks so much, to Shaun, Penn, Galway Bay and Kim for such informative ideas in the previous 5 posts – I’m working on my tiller this weekend and your advice will be carefully put into practice. I realise that it takes time to write your helpful comments and I just want you to know how grateful I am. Good on you!
