I just bought a hobie cat 14 turbo and I can't seem to get the rudders to lock down into a vertical position. The bar inside the metal piece "i think it's called the casting" is hitting the top of the black stern facing C shaped catch. I tried rotating the black piece upward a bit so the bar would go into the C cut out of the black piece but the black piece will not budge other than half a centimeter either way. Is this normal? I think the last owners were sailing with the casting resting ontop of the black C shaped piece. Please send me any ideas you have, this is my first catamaran and I don;t want to damage it on my first outting!
Thank you in advance for any help anyone can offer!
