Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] help with steering

Can you disconnect the steering cables and steer just using the autopilot
mounted to the rudder post?

You can also rig the emergency tiller to get to a safer island.

I am glad to hear you made it.

Fairer winds,

My Super Maramu was in Grenada for Ivan. Thankfully she does not seem
to be heavely damaged. However, one of the steering rods that
attaches to the rudder quadrant was bent. Does anyone have any
experience in replacing this item.

In order for me to get the boat out of Grenada I need to temporarely
repair this item.

can the rod assembly be replaced without replacing the entire cable.

Has anyone steered the boat with just one rod attached.

Thank you
