I have a new tiller from you. The old one is of questionable integrity despite my best efforts to salvage it.
The old tiller was laminated layers of teak which I understand now is too brittle a wood. However, when I rebuilt the rudder cheeks, I did put grease on the inside of the box. The old teak tiller had stainless steel plates on each side to, apparently, buffer the space. I understand you recommend formica. I suppose SS is better if it fits.
Question: should I get the grease off interior of the tiller housing/ box before installing the new tiller?
Thanks in advance.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
