Well, unless you consider aliens...

Seriously, Its all a guess until you fully inspect the steering system.

Gee!!! Can't wait to get rid of the wheel on the haulout next week. No more guessing what's happening and fighting the wheel and all those cables and sheaves.

I discovered it is a lot easier to talk on the phone, problem solved, question answered.

Correction: they were 40’ swells not 40’ seas. I am NOT too good at forum writing that is for sure.

You were right; a mix of aliens in the Bermuda triangle that took over the helm, loosened…a few things, snapped a cable & dropped the rudder.

Thanks for the info everyone.
