where should I apply lubricant/grease?
I think lack of lubricant this may have contributed to the issue as the boat has been used very litle over the past several years.
"adjust the wheel when you remove it"?
What is "it", the steering wheel?
Sorry I am a novice ;)
last question, I hope
So, the rudder does not have to be in any particular location (left, rightr or center) when tightening the bolt.
Just so we are clear, this is an inboard board with fixed properller shaft and independent rudder behind the propeller.
