Our new to us boat is very stiff to shift. We have determined that the problem is at the pedestal
. Once removed the ring from the pedestal
, it had to be placed in a vise to be able to move the controls at all.
However, we cannot determine what to do about this. After two days of cleaning
and moving, we finally got the pieces apart, but replacements
do not seem to be available. The only replacements
we have seen are for the handles themselves or the entire ring. Is there an intermediate solution?
