Rgvkiwi 12 Posted November 28, 2021 Share Posted November 28, 2021 As per title, I am mechaniclly able and am keen to know how the rudder is setup on a Ross830 with a view to a stop gap repair if not a full repair before our planned Christmas week cruise.. Our tiller is quite stiff, it creaks on first movement, slops and then settles in to place until the next change of direction. Presuming this is a rudder issue. Its obviousley not right. So a few questions for the hive mind The key question is can or will it fall off, or fail its key locating (however it is "splined" to the rudder)...? if we use it during Christmas. Knowing how they are designed would be a big step in being able to consider the risk of waiting or not. Can anyone help point me to a plan or diagram, photo etc of the bearing / bushing setup and however the tiller is located to the rudder? My guess is we have a bearing/bushing issue AND a locating pin/spline problem. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
