The sand blasted and painted tiller and control arm is now back in place with new hot dipped galvanised bolts,gland packing and geased bearing.There is a black painted plate that has a steady bearing at the top which is bolted under the first deck beam-coming soon! Note the square head and we have an emergency tiller to fit.There is a screw plate flush with the deck which will need to be removed to accessthe rudder head.
