This blog documents the modifications necessary to get seaworthy (warts and all), then the adventures (hopefully) on board our Trailer Sailer 6.1 metre Jarcat6 Catamaran, Kismet.

Tiller pivots

The SS 316 Ear expanders (similar to those I used on the Vogue) are my pivots for the tiller.
These are really inexpensive on eBay and the 8mm have a perfect 1/4" internal diameter. The 10mm have about an 8.5mm internal which is a tad sloppy but better than what would happen if I just drilled an 8mm hole in the PVC pipe. I had to buy lots of different sizes to find this out as the ear expander jewelry business isn't terribly accurate on dimensions.
