Tiller Head

On most Alberg 30's, the rudder post is 1" diameter and has a 1/4" keyway on the forward side. The tiller head fitting for this arrangement is the snippet from Edson catalog Edson part #965BR-100 or #965CH-100. A weakness of this model is that the "ears" through which the bolt passes can be bent inwards by the pressure of the "H" piece holding the tiller. As this happens, you'll get more and more play in your steering. I recommend putting a bronze bushing in the gap between the "ears" before this happens.

If your boat has the keyway aft, you might check the Buck Algonquin part TSA-100.
