Capri 14.2 – Removable Tiller Extension
Category: Sailboat, steering
Problem: One of my friends wanted to sail the Capri 14.2 but was more comfortable sailing from more of the center of the boat. They were uncomfortable using the standard tiller extension and asked if I could make the tiller longer for them.
Action: I cut and shaped a piece of pine about a foot long and secured it to the tiller with a couple of small hose clamps after wrapping the tiller with duct tape for protection.
Result” It worked great and the friend enjoyed the sail!
When idea was conceived: 2016
How much time it took to develop: 20 min
How much money it took to develop: None
Current status: Available for use on a tiller but I sold the Capri 14.2
Since it was originally done:
