Rod End!!

This means little to all y’all, but the lovely Nicole at Raymarine sent me a replacement Rod End for my Autohelm. The original is stuck in a lump of old tiller arm:

Manky old tiller arm and its hostage rod end.

I should have ignored the surveyor report and just left the tiller arm well alone: crappy it was, but in a million years it was never going to fail. But… I meddled.

So now I have my new (totally different) tiller arm, which means a lot of hard work to retro fit it:

New Edson Tiller Arm. Totally different size and shape.

But – at least I have a new Rod End!
