Making a tiller to rudder post bracket

Walked into the shop here at work yesterday and saw something that looked familiar, a stainless metal bracket that is clearly intended to hold a tiller and join to the rudder post. It is made from what looks like stamped 3/16" thick stainless and it is cracked. The machinist told me it was a boat owned by someone I know. I know he has a Catalina 27 and wants the bracket replaced.
I suggested that instead of using stainless, that it should be made from two pieces of G10, one on either side of the wood tiller. If he does it that way, I'll take some pics

Re: Making a tiller to rudder post bracket

I've seen s.s. and bronze castings; but never a laminate. Dunno.....guess it would WOR; but doubt it would hold up well,as the lam was not designed for those directional stresses.
Me? I'd weld something up from s.s. stock and call it good
