Tiki 38 aluminum tiller bar

Is there anyone with some ideas or images of an aluminum tiller bar for the Tiki 38. What should be the diameter and the wall? And the connection with the tiller make the same hole for the pin? The structure will strain or maybe the hole in the aluminum post will deteriorate?Thanks for any help! I still didn´t start with the deckpod but things are going...See More
