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.

The exterior cosmetic surgery brings the looks of the A3 Cabriolet to the rest of the range.

Volvo develops new energy storage technology

Thu, 17 Oct 2013

Volvo is looking to make heavy batteries in electric vehicles a thing of the past, unveiling a new technology still under development that could use the body panels of the vehicle to store energy. Everyone knows that right now one of the biggest technological limiting factors of electric vehicles are the batteries. They can be damaged through depletion, they add weight, they use expensive and polluting technologies to manufacture, and they just don't hold as much energy as we'd like.
