A Honda eu2000 costs $1,400. The generator that I bought cost 7 times less than that.

I would rather save $1,200 and keep my generator that is no louder than a normal conversation.

I know that the releasable wire ties will not meet the USCG requirement. I posted a link to them to show that as long as the wire-tie is not one of those it should be OK.

It is 68 decibels, which is the same as a normal conversation.

The reviewers also said that it is not loud.

I cut off my zip ties thinking that I needed to use a length of wire with a lead slug at one end. I tried to wrap it around my valve handle but it wouldn't stay in place.

Thanks!

I will check to see if I can remove the handle. I think that it may be rusted on.

I don't think my handle has a place to put a padlock.

What is a "non-releasable wire tie"?

What do you use to lock the waste thru-hull valve?

I am currently using plastic zip-ties on the thru-hull valve handle/lever but wonder what I need to do to satisfy the Coast Guard regulations?

I have seen a couple of other sailboats with the rudder head installed backwards.

Did some sailboat manufacturers install them backwards or do the owners or mechanics accidentally do it?

I'm not sure why it broke. I just bought the sailboat about 2 weeks ago. It's my first boat.

That would be great if you have one that fits!

Here are a few photos of my broken rudder head:

What is the thing that the tiller bolts on to called?

One of the bolt holes ripped out and I am afraid that it won't be long before the other one does, too.

Is this an easy part to replace? How do I do it?
