Finally... The tiller

While working on my rigging I managed to get a couple of shots of my tiller.
Made by Maxwell Patten Sr. only weeks before I launched for trials. Made from mahogany and ash sandwiched and varnished. It's a fantastic piece of work and I'm proud to have this specimen on my little boat. I attached A tiller tamer for my excursions to the front of the boat.
The tiller is mostly to plan and in generally the same style. A wooden plug is in the end to keep the tiller in place.
the tiller sits in a good position and don't interfere with my knees when bringing it across.
