Vintage Sailboat Tiller Fitting & Handle, US $175.00, image 1
Condition:Used

Bronze tiller fitting and oak handle removed from 30 ft 1936 Kings Cruiser in 1976 and stored since. Curved handle with ball on end. About 43" from center of rudder post to end of handle. Rudderpost shaft fitting tapers from 1 1/4" to 1 1/8" in about 1 3/4" of fitting and has two opposite keyways, one is 1/4" and the other is 1/8"
The fitting has no markings I can see but all other deck fittings were by Merriman and I believe this is also.
Three 3/8 " mounting holes in handle and fitting has shallow bevel head holes on starboard and 3/8" fine thread holes opposite in the fitting but the threads on the center one (with the bolt) are stripped.
Handle has some checks and wack marks but none significant and little by way of stain marks in the oak.
Overall considering it's age, it's in good shape and I wouldn't hesitate to clean it up & sail it, but not offshore.

Porsche 911: the new 2009 model

Fri, 06 Jun 2008

By Tim Pollard First Official Pictures 06 June 2008 08:00 The great survivor of the sports car world – the Porsche 911 – has evolved again. Porsche today unveils the latest in a long line of 911s and the new one heralds the arrival of Porsche’s new twin-clutch transmission (dubbed PDK) and direct-injection. Amazingly, it makes the coupe nearly as fuel efficient as a family car, nudging 30mpg.  Porsche 911: the 2009 model year There’s no new model designation this time: it remains a 997 at heart and Porsche calls the latest 911 a ‘second-generation 997’, despite a raft of technical changes under the same-again skin.
