Hey do you think I should stop using my boat? What do I do now and how much should it cost? Thanks Rag's

Time for a new gimbal ring. You will also be replacing the seals and bearings and the tiller shaft. It might be better to see if you can find a good used one from one of the OSO members.

You know thats really not that big of a job. You could probably do it yourslf on a Saturday. It's an expensive part, and I would replace the bellows while your at it.

Yes that's bad but you still have 6 days to get it fixed in time for the Fun Run,
You can do it
Hope you can get it fixed in time, if not maybe you can talk Les into getting a little salt on his boat

If there's anything I can help you with let me know.
Hope to see you Saturday.

Just to let people know I would never think about using it like this. It kinda wig's me out thinking about the fact that I was running WFO and wondering why the steering seamed alot more sloppy. TW ya I will pester Less sence I was testing his prop for the weekend.
