My boat has a fiberglass tiller. There is a Forespar tiller extension that
has stripped out of the tiller. There is also a small crack in the tiller
that originates from the tiller extension.
I'm considering putting in a different tiller extension that may have a more
secure installation. If the new extension uses a larger hole then I may
drill out the existing hole. Or I could epoxy the existing hole and drill a
I'm concerned about the crack growing. I had considered putting something
for extra support around the tiller extension, such as some strong tape or a
hose clamp. The hose clamp would be strong but it would have a screw which
could catch on things.
I think the tiller extension would be really helpful to be able to hike out
when things get lively. I would really prefer to keep the existing tiller
as long as possible.
Any suggestions before I proceed with repairs?
