Having repaired the tiller extension, I was fortunate with good wind. Top speed 9 knots.
Two years ago the tiller extension rubber joint broke. I bought a new one but failed to insert the supplied metal pin, fixing it to the tiller extension. So I used steel wire instead. Now, that wire had rusted and worn off. Suddenly the entire tiller extension was loose. My fault.
Taking opportunity of good wind. Stopping by at neighbours’ house down the coast for a chat. Back home planing. No problems.
Very light winds.
Calm weather. Just a 15 minute exercise while the others drink coffee and the kids play Minecraft.
