Folding Tiller on Janus


After looking at a few samples on the Alberg site I decided to try my own. The first test was a failure because of cracking in the bends. The second test turned out fine. It has eleven layers of mahogany cut at 3/16" on the table saw. This was made with simple tools, table saw, belt sander and band saw to cut the stainless hinges. If anyone has any questions or would like the blank for bending or the pine tiller to experiment with just let me know.

This Old Boat book cover This Old Boat by Don Casey

Subtitled "turn a rundown fiberglass boat into a first-class yacht on a shoestring budget," this book is the best introduction I know boat maintenance for the new or prospective owner of a "modern classic" sailboat. Starting with guidelines for selecting a boat, Casey proceeds to fiberglass repairs, cabin and deckwork, spars and rigging, boat equipment, woodwork, electrical, plumbing, refrigeration, painting, canvas work and sails. All of this is described in clear, simple terms perfect for the inexperienced. This is the book that taught me fiberglass work. But don't let it fool you; this book is appropriate for experienced boatowners, too. I still refer to it.
