View Full Version : Steering Has Become Very Stiff Any Suggestions Why

07-12-2011, 11:14 PM
I have a 91 tristar with 240 hours on it. I hadnt had any steering issues until 2 weeks ago. I ran over some debris (small tree limb), I noticed my steering wheel was positioned at about 2 o clock while running straight(was at 12 o clock) and the steering has become very stiff when the boat is moving but seems fine when not moving. I checked the rudder, propeller, hull, not a scratch anywhere and the rudder has very little movement up and down and side to side, but i did develop a small leak at the front of the base of the rudder port. any suggestions? port,cable,etc thanks for any help
