"Hi Norm, so your tillers are not built according to the plans. I build mine exactly like the plans and 100cm away from the aft beam there is a lot of curve! Nice radar! Daniel"

Ganz Daniel replied to Norm van't Hoff's discussion Tiki 38' Steering
"Hi Norm, indeed it looks like the tiller connection is too close to the aft beam. Maybe it is just the photo, but you can mesure it, it should be about 100cm form center aft (tube)beam to the connection tillers/ cross beam.Maybe you should check…"

Hi Ganz.

Dave English here.

I have a Tiki 38 Sarayu.

I notice you have made up the Wharram's wind autohelm system.

Just wondering how efficient it is and how much of the time can you use it.

Cheerrs,

Dave.

THanks Daniel.

I have a an electrical wheel autopilot which is good as you say for short trips.

I will make the windvane a project. Thanks for the info.

Cheers.

Hi Daniel.

Looking at your photos, it looks like a simple trim tab off the rudders. I have built a system like that on a previous boat. The drawback was that the trim tab was bolted to the back of the rudder, so the trim tabs lived permanently in the water like the rudders. Is the setup the same with the Wharrams windvane?
