Small cracks in helm spokes <briant@...>


We recently observed two small cracks branching out from the base of one of the spokes of our helm wheel. The cracks are about 1.5 inches along the back of the hub that attaches to the steering mechanism (not the side with the signed Henri Amel plaque)

I haven't determined if these are cosmetic only or part of the load bearing structure of the helm. I was wondering if anyone had seen this on their SM, and if so what did you do to fix it?

Thank you!
