Aug 13 - In Big Pine Key. Put my replacement Adventure in the water for first time. Rudder cotter fell out after 1 minute. I'm rudderless on a brand new boat.

How do I get parts ASAP!
I want to catch a tarpon :cry:

Thanks

Hardware is hardware no matter where you get it. For ASAP, you might try a nearby hardware store and get one stainless (or any other kind) of cotter pin and you'll be back in business. If there aren't any, you can probably make a temporary one out of a small nail, paperclip, pen cartridge, bailing wire, speaker wire, fork tine, dental floss, tape or something in your wife's purse -- good luck!

Sorry you had a problem so soon, and I'm sure your dealer can order you a proper replacement part, but this will get you on the water in the mean time. The fish are waiting! 8)
