Capri 14.2 Removable Tiller Swing Stop Pin
Category: Rudder, sailboat
Problem: Before I acquired an actual Capri 14.2 rudder and tiller, I used the rudder I had fashioned for my sailing dinghy and tiller I had fashioned for it when I attached it to a rowboat. However, there was not a way to prevent the tiller from dropping below a certain point while sailing.
Action: I drilled and tapped a hole in the rudder and screwed in a stainless steel bolt with the head removed as a tiller stop. Of coarse the pin could be easily removed
