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.

2013 Range Rover: Are the Bentley SUV & Lamborghini Urus viable?

Sun, 30 Sep 2012

Does the arrival of the new Range Rover make it almost impossible for the Bentley SUV and Lamborghini Urus SUV to succeed? For all that forty years, the Range Rover has never really had any competition. Yes, there are other luxury SUVs, but none that hold a candle to the Range Rover and none with its mix of abilities.

Zagato & CPP in Joint Venture. Really, they are.

Wed, 20 Jul 2011

Bentley Zagato - the catalyst for the CPP Zagato deal (adsbygoogle=window.adsbygoogle||[]).push({}); A couple of weeks ago we reported that CPP – owners of Spyker and Bowler – has quitely gobbled up Milanese Car Design Studio Zagato at some point in 2010. Which made sense. It made sense because it is CPP that builds many of the Zagato cars you can think of.

Walt Arfons: 1916-2013

Wed, 05 Jun 2013

No one seemed to know why the two brothers stopped talking, but their resulting rivalry led to some of the fastest cars ever built, two of which went more than 600 mph. Walt Arfons battled his half-brother Art on the Bonneville Salt Flats and at dragstrips across the country, but the pair rarely spoke over the course of one of the longest and most intense motorsport rivalries ever. Walt and Art started out working together, building a three-wheeled dragster in their native rural Ohio in 1952.
