I think the part is no longer made, but does anyone have a line on a rubber tiller connector? I'd rather not "upgrade", but instead buy used. Any leads?

Thanks,

Dan

The white tendons, with the nylon thread reinforcements, should be readily available through Hobie. I can mail you my slightly used pair, if you want them.

If you want the original black tendons, I have one (and two halves) that I'd be happy to send you.

Do you need the end-caps as well?

This is the 90 degree bend piece at the same diameter as the tiller tubes? No longer available since I can't remember when. Early 90's?

You need a longer tiller crossbar to update to the current setup. We have a kit that does this too: #1954 TILLER CONNECTER KIT,WAVE
HEAVY DUTY INCL TLR XBAR

That was fast. I do have all the parts but would like to stick with the old 90's style tendon. It sheared cleanly at the rudder and I could rig something in the meantime. However, I'd gladly take you up on the one you have! How shall we proceed?

You can send me a pm with your mailing address. I'll have to find the parts in my garage (shouldn't take too many years). Actually, I think I know right where they are.

Just to be sure we're talking about the same thing, what I have is shown on page 4 of the parts guide, labeled "Tendon Tiller Connector". I changed mine to the new 1956 elbows a few years ago.

We are in fact talking about different things. However, to upgrade to the modern style if one of the old flexible rubber 90 degree elbow tendons doesn't materialize, I'll stil be glad to take the tiller connectors you have in the garage. I'll pm you the address. Other than new standing rigging and the cam kits, this boat has held up well for it's age. I do need to do a little maintance now as it needs standing rigging again ( a few burrs), velcro tramp fasteners, new tramp line (burrs again), and a new sail at some point. However since it's my father in law's boat, I'm reluctant to do it all myself. Likely I'll leave the sail for later.

Has anyone done the upgrade kit and kept the old rubber elbow connectors?
