Tiller is not quite done but it's getting there. Here I'm setting the final posture of the last piece:
The plans don't say how far into the cockpit the tiller should go. I decided to go with the above after looking at pictures of other boats, and also after thinking (guessing) that having it be too far into the cockpit would be a nuisance. Easy enough to extend later on if necessary.
Gluing the last two parts together:
Getting ready to laminate the uni on all sides of the join:
Getting ready to laminate the final carbon layers over the join:
After wetting out the carbon, I just wrapped it around the tiller in a spiral pattern, then peel-plyed it, then wrapped it in plastic to help get any air bubbles out. Probably thicker than it needs to be but I think that's okay. In fact I am thrilled so far with how it's turning out - this thing is very strong and very light. Tiller is being faired at the moment, more later.
