Anyone know where I can get a new tiller handle for my 7.9?

I had the fellow at Rudder Craft do my 9.1 last year.. Its a beautiful unit.
It looks like he already has a template for the 7.9.

Greg,
Also take a look at the 'Parts List" that Chris has added to the Class site.

greg,

Build your own. I did. I didn't like the shape of ours so I made it look like some of the custom J-24 ones you see online with a 2 45 degree angles before it levels off at the end. It was ash and mahagony and I can post some pic's if you like?

Okay, think I figured out how to add attachments. First picture is the form I used to make my handle. You can see notches on the bottom opposite the curved section. These were to accomodate clamps. Let me know if you have any questions.
