Has anyone replaced their own rudder "Up" line. Mine recently broke & I am unsure if I should attempt a repair w/ current line. Or take to dealer. Any insight would be appreciated

It's easy, once you understand it.

Where did it break?

What condition is the rest of the line (should it be replaced)?

There are several different instructions that should help.

It broke just below the t-handle in front seat. Then retracted inside the boat. I pulled the back seats line out too while not thinking. I will look at the instructions mmiller

That's an odd place for a break. You probably should look for burrs or some other problem in that area unless it wore out while pulled out.
