Here's the basic steering system: http://2010.archive.hobiecat.com/suppor ... Manual.pdf

The 2011 Oasis should use the same system but with a couple of minor modifications.

1. Two "L" cranks in parallel rather than a single "T" crank. This accomplishes the same thing but with fewer space constraints, allowing a less constricted cockpit.

2. Continuous loop system using a cheek block rather than terminating at the crank. This takes the static tension off the forward crank, compensating for the increased friction of using two handles.

Here are a few pics showing the details:

Hope that does it for you until Hobie gets their manual updated. 8)
