How about just buy a block of wood and make your own? I did this on a buddys boat after he fell on his old tiller and broke it in half.
Couldn't have been much of a tiller if it broke in half just falling on it. I don't think I could break our tiller if I jumped
on it--even the old one that's already cracked.
I took the old one, put it back together as best as i could and laid it out on a peice of 2x8,...
Plain old SPF?!?!
No offense intended: But that stuff isn't all that strong, laterally--esp. "sideways" to the grain. I would not trust such a construct on our boat. Maybe your buddy's boat is a lot smaller than our 30' Pearson?
