This stainless steel version of the emergency tiller head is a vast improvement from the original cast aluminum design. Nothing's worse than your emergency tiller head fail without warning when you need it most.
Cast aluminum, by its nature, fails catastrophically with almost no deformation to warn you. Stainless steel will deform providing advance warning long before failure. We have made this part so robust it is unlikely to ever fail. In addition, a stainless tiller head eliminates the corrosion problem inherent in having an aluminum head mounted to a stainless steel rudder post. With stainless against stainless the electrolysis problem is eliminated.
For use on any Catalina 30 with wheel steering built before September 1986 through hull number 4725.
