O’Pen Skiff Tiller End Plug Murrays Upgrade
The O’Pen Skiff Tiller End Plug Murrays Upgrade is the solution to a weak point on the O’Pen Skiff boat. This upgrade replaces the two standard tiller end plugs that go on each pintle. Only two are required instead of four and the part is more substantial than OEM because the Murrays Plug is solid instead of hollow.
To install: Drill out and remove rivets from the two or 4 plugs in your rudder assembly. Insert plug with “cap” or lip at the bearing surface, (the bottom) and drill a hole through the part and install a nut and bolt to secure the plug. Nut and bolt can be purchased separately or re-used if you have already changed the part on your boat.
