    You said there is no reason to have hydraulics on a boat with a tiller. There's a good reason for it. Two actually. Sometimes you want a break from the tedium of steering in the same position, but in conditions of heavy weather with weather helm, the power of the hydraulics overpower the weather helm. It's not silly, it's just another choice available to the helmsman. Every ship I ever worked on in over 38 years had alternative ways to be steered. Maybe I'm a creature of habit.To each his own. Fair Winds.

    Sorry to trouble you, but I've read on the forum that you are or was a Rasmus 35 owner and I hope you can help me with a small problem.

    I'm also a HR Rasmus 35 owner (hull No. 616) and my friends and I are just making some small repairs on it. However, I've encountered a small problem.
    On the left side, just above the bottom of the keel, in the middle of it, there is some sort of a fitting and it's leaking a very small ammount of (fresh) water. This fitting is visible on this picture ( just right of the support rod.

    It's been previously repaired with putty and epoxy, but the water caused some osmosis to occur.
    I don't know any other Rasmus owner so as far as I know, you're the only one who will definitely know what it is

    Thanks in advance and greetings from Slovenia
