Especially for builders of the PT Eleven, please see this post on the builder's blog. It pertains to the attachment point for the cedar back seat and also to the leather pads. Current versions of the builder's manual does not have this and it should be noted. Cheers, PTW

A back seat for the PT Eleven
PT 11 Tiller and Hiking stick
Our tiller and hiking stick stock is made of Sapele. The tiller is tapered on 3 sides, shaped at both ends and drilled. The hiking stick has rounded ends, chamfered edges and drilled for attachment.
The builder finishes the tiller (on the right) by rounding the edges, hand sanding and oiling.The length of the hiking stick is just right to fit in the corner of the transom of the PT Eleven, for hands free steering when needed. It also folds and stows well. Tapering the tiller requires a router jig and so we offer this kit with most of the job done for you. We also offer untapered, 1" tiller stock, for the builder's who wish to shape their own. See the OPTIONS PAGE or the ORDER FORM on our website for prices.
