Took my TI out for third time and started noticing for the first time that rudder was catching on something. Noticed the levers are no longer aligned. Seems rudder works belter toward one tack than the other. Can't get my head in to look to see what is the matter. Any suggestions.

Just finished following lines with my hand to figure out where the problem was. Still hanging up but now I have one rudder control going an extra 1/4 turn than the other one. Help!

Maybe the lines to the rudder (left/right) are loose? or you did not have the rudder cleated down tight?
