R34: Rudder Stock to Tiller connection

Posted: 25 Mar 2005 - By: Alandowie
Over the past couple of seasons, we've had problems keeping the tiller tightly clamped to the rudder stock.
The threads in the aluminium fitting [on the rudder foot] are worn. We have tried tightening the clamping bolts as soon as they become lose, about every 30 minutes; but they even work lose whilst she is lieing unused at her marina berth.
The fitting that secures to the rudder stock appears to be twisted. 39;ve been warned that the fit to the rudder stock is non-standard (its a tapered wedge on the forward side of the stock) and tricky to machine. 1111779540-->
