Rag's,

There are several ways of combating this issue by yourself. I would shoot a PM to Hot Boat and or Tantrum and I am sure they can tell you what they did to fix Tantrums. It worked very well and was not all that bad of a job. I too would replace the bellows etc while you have it apart. Good luck.

Tantrum or Hot Boat, talk to me son. Any one that has a good used gimble ring at a fair price (Gadgets) or any one else please PM or e-mail me as I am sure I can do the wrenching on it. [email protected] Thanks Charlie

Tank, several things contribute to this issue. The worst one is time. Steering slop also contributes. When mine broke, it looked just like Rags, just ask Tinkerboater.

I think leaving the water also helps it along....it puts a lot of stress on the drive when you re-enter the water after catching some air.
