I really appreciate the responses! I've been reviewing the forums after this post, and that seemed to be a common trigger. The rudders were constantly jumping up, and the locking system was not working. I used a bunch of wd40 to try and free up the locks a bit, an I'm going to try another dry run tomorrow. If the problem persists, I'll pull off the system and investigate further.
To add another couple issues, I broke a piece of the sail track off where the sail enters the extension. Now... The sail exits the track when it hits the gap, and I have to take the mast down to feed it through. I'm assuming I can buy another track, any thoughts? Finally, my tack plate has fallen off completely. I tried to use a grommet to hold it, but that ripped off this weekend and now it's holding by the rope thy runs the edge of the sail. I'm going to try and locate a sail shop here in town, but will it hold on that rope if I ride a couple times this weekend? I'm in ft. Myers, fl with 10-15 winds, so it's not particularly brutal wind. Thoughts?
Again, I'm blown away by the help you've all offered, and you can count on me offering my insight going forward (once I'm a more seasoned sailor)
