…I have a LL XP10 w/ retractable skeg…after only a few outing…the skeg refuses to deploy sometimes. Any one else having this problem and how did you remedy it? I have done the usual hi-pressure wash of the skeg box…checked the skeg cable. I can’t find a visible reason for the skeg to hang up. Only thing I can see is a Spring under the skeg and maybe it has snapped in one of the windings and is no longer pushing out the skeg.
contact your dealer or liquid logic, they are a good company that stands behind there products. They should be able to help u…
email firstname.lastname@example.org, he was able to help me with a skeg wire issue on my Coupe
if your skeg is like mine, you should be able to unbolt the skeg wire from the handle mechanism, then pop the skeg out a little ways to see if there is any debris hanging up the pivot point or spring.
I hate it when
there is a problem indicated in the subject line, and I open the post to see the name of a boat I bought 2 days ago!
(BTW, and OT, I had it out yesterday in some pretty fast moving flatwater and found surprisingly that I only used the skeg when I realized I had not been using it and should check it out. I attribute this to learning the stern draw the previous weekend in a white water class – a very nice correcting stroke! The instructor said to be patient and have faith in the stroke, meaning that you can give the correction and go back to a normal stroke right away before necessarily feeling it correct – very cool.)
