old and new
That is the old tiller with the new rudder stock and blade. Brightwork done, hardware in place (two pintels, two cheek blocks, old line cleat on the tiller but a new auto-release cam cleat on top of the tiller). The green line both holds the blade down when sailing and up when anchored or tied to the dock. The red paint is primer, anti-fouling paint will go on later. This is good enough to test out this weekend when we've got (finally!) a decent weather window.
