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.

Mercedes introduces C-Class Estate

Thu, 22 May 2014

Mercedes-Benz introduced a wagon variant of its new C-Class today at its factory in Bremen in northwestern Germany. The C-Class Estate is not only an affirmation of the popularity of the Benz wagon, a popularity that transcends decades as well as engine swaps, but also a commitment to Bremen -- a facility that already builds the C-Class, along with the E-Class, SL, SLK and GLK. The C-Class Estate makes extensive use of aluminum construction -- up to 50 percent of its body is made of the stuff.

CPP buys Zagato

Tue, 05 Jul 2011

Ferrari 550 GTZ - built by CPP (adsbygoogle=window.adsbygoogle||[]).push({}); In a move that seems to have┬áreceived┬áno coverage whatsoever, our favourite specialist car putter-together – CPP (Coventry Prototype Panels as was) – has quietly bought up Zagato. For those of you who are ‘Vlad Watchers’ this may come as no surprise. It seems that Vladimir Antonov is on a quest to buy up everything interesting there is to buy in the specialist car world (and Portsmouth FC too – no accounting for taste!), which includes funding CPP and its recent acquisitions.

Porsche Museum opens 911 Identity exhibition

Wed, 01 Feb 2012

As the seventh-generation Porsche 911 hits the market, the Porsche Museum is honoring its brand-defining model with a new exhibition called 911 Identity. The display in the company's Stuttgart museum highlights each generation of 911, from the 1963 original through to the 2012 991, offering facts, figures and artifacts from their year of launch. As well as road going variants of the 911, motor sport versions are on show, from the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Safari, through to the current 911 GT3R Hybrid, via the fearsome 935s of the 1970s and '80s.
