I'm a fan of sailkote. It made the sliding hatch over the companionway so much friendlier. No more grunting and squealing, just push with a finger.

as for the tiller helper, That's pretty much what I was talking about, except that I'll just do it with what I have on hand. No need to spend cash if I can avoid it.
