after mostly problem-free last season, noticed uneven rudder
range once out on the hard
for annual wash and antifoul. remains unresolved despite now afloat, but going nowhere.
no damage/impact noticed (or admitted to) during haul out
full range to port, but only 2/3rds to starboard (as evidenced by autohelm rudder
the chain at the wheel/binnacle appears perfectly aligned on the cog. dead central when rudder straight, correct range when turning to port, but blocked when 2/3rds to starboard (ie I don't believe the chain is the problem).
the stops at the rudder post have been adjusted to allow for maximum range, yet it is still not right.
five people (so far) have ventured into the aft locker for a look-see, but all have come out without an answer.
I feel this problem should be easy to fix. the Beneteau steering
arrangements cannot be that complicated...
despite that, I cannot sail the boat
in this condition.
