The "T" Handle Saga
|The New Pull Handle|
It would seem a simple thing to purchase a replacement "T" handle. Not so. After spending upwards of $50 to "special order" a replacement handle that did not fit I resigned myself to just using the pliers.
One of the employees of Sailcraft Service here in Oriental is Dan (see picture left.) I know from experience that Dan can fabricate just about anything. So while we were sharing a cup of coffee I ask him if he could make a simple "T" handle threaded for the existing cable. Of course he said yes. About a hour later I stopped by his shop and was presented with this beautiful little stainless "T" handle. Sometimes is is just knowing the right guy!
Fair winds and following seas :)
