What Pro10is said!
Great work PSJ, that 1/4” wall thickness is impressive as it eliminates the need for bracing. 8)

I’ve found when soloing with the outboard, moving from the rear to the front seat increases speed by up to 1/2 knot. I fitted two telescopic sections of a broken golf ball retriever I had lying around to a cut down outboard tiller extension. Makes a lightweight, easy to fit/remove telescopic throttle control that I can use from the front seat.

Hi,

Couldn't tell from the pictures but do you have some type of a tether on that extension in case it would happen to fall overboard?

No, I haven’t felt it necessary to tether John. When in use it is securely clamped to the outboard tiller and when not in use it lays across the tramp and is bungeed to the aka.
