Hi, I hope someone can help me with this:
My steering line has broken several times at the place where the line comes though the rudder drum bolt. I guess line rubs on the edge of the hollow stainless steel drum bolt and then breaks. This has happen twice over the last year and I don't use my Kayak that often.
If any body can make a repair suggestion I'd sure appreciated it....It really sucks when your rudder give up the ghost while Ocean Kayaking.
Also, the screws that are used to secure the steering lines are screwed into plastic and one of the screws is stripped. Can anyone give me advice on a fix for this.
Call a dealer and get these things repaired or replaced. The bolt with a sharp burr can cause the cut line issue - we have updated our process on this part with our bolt vendor to make them smoother. Warranty is a simple process, just call your nearest dealer 1800hobie49 - or click the dealer finder link at the top of this page.
