Is there any difference in rudder cables and sheaths on the market or are they all basically the same? <br />
Any ideas of how to remove cables sheaths in a composite boat would also be greatly appreciated!
I have a lot of friction in the rudder system (could hardly move the pedals) on a new Futura II after two weeks of paddling and could not figure out the problem or what was causing it. When everything was disconnected each part of the system moved easily. I replaced the cables, cleaned the inside of the sheaths, wiped the cables with 303 as recommended by a local shop and it didn't help. With no other access into the hull to see what things looked like in there I placed a 1 inch hole in the back for a soon to be drain plug. The rudder cable sheaths inside the hull look like stretched out cork screws. Definitly not what I expected to see but I obviously need to replace the cables sheaths.
Thanks in advance for any responses,
