Cheers guys...

*Cover a must. Coming over for a template  VP.

No hurry as can make up a temp cover.

Seems exotic varni$h not that necessary.

 

Nick from ATL suggested 2.5oz wrap with 207.

Anybody done it?

Lateral.... are you in auckland. For maybe $20 for sunbrella, and a bit of time on my sewing machine, you can do it for free.

....  some boats have "show tillers" ... they are kept down below and put on just for along side display or special occasions.

The normal tiller is basic and impervious ...
