Thanks, Bill, for the excellent description. You filled in some important gaps, namely the grease fitting and the shelf for the batteries.

It turns out the side mount Teleflex controls on our pedestal will fit nicely on the side of the port locker just about where you describe and the pictures MC1 sent show, so I guess the way is clear. I had to drill out the stainless screws fitting the controls to the pedestal accessory box today. Someone forgot the TefGel when they installed it.

No need to send more pictures. I'll should it done by that time.

Thanks everyone else for your comments on tillers. I could give you a list of pros for the tiller as long as my backstay, most salient of which is that Bill Crealock designed her that way. Our original 34 was ordered with a tiller (you know the story, Bill). So we are coming full circle and it feels good.

Dave
