Smart Track Rudder Sticks, how to fix?
Posted by: tattoolenny on Nov-03-12 8:04 PM (EST) Category: Kayaks
Hello, Currently I am paddling a 20' Necky Loooksha II with a Smart Track Rudder. Recently the rudder has been sticking and this is causing difficulty in using the rudder. I typically launch with the rudder up, get out into deeper water and lower the rudder with the rudder release line at the side of the boat. But, the rudder is sticking. Even after disassembling the rudder and cleaning it thoroughly, I cannot solve the problem. The rudder will release only when I go to the back of the boat and manually pull it down more than 1/2 way. Does anyone have any advice about fixing the problem? Any help would be appreciated.
