" Need help identifying a tiller extension handle brand that I can safely use on a 35HP Evinrude,MDL 35803. Some catalogs I have seen state "for trolling only". Are there any brand names that can be used at cruising speed. Boat is a 15 1/2 foot fiberglass open hull with a 68" beam. Any help is greatly appreciated "

" Bob,

My experience is that the tiller extensions that are available are not strong enough for the job. You can, however, make them much stronger by taking a piece of PVC pipe that fits around the base of the extension, and load the assembly up with 3M 5200, or an epoxy putty. This has worked several times for me. I haven't heard any complaints yet.
