Re: [Amel] Rack and Pinion

Hi Eric, I had a problem , not with my rack and pinion, but with a broken cable--once on a Sharki about 16 years ago and the second time on Pen Azen a year ago. The broken cable didn't stop us sailing about 2,300 miles till we got to Guadeloupe to replace it. At the same time the guys in Guadeloupe replaced the rack and pinion--the boat was then 9 years old with about 40,000 miles on the clock. It was not a difficult job except for separating the steering wheel which took a lot of force and care. Cheers, Ian and Judy, Pen Azen, SM 302, Hamble
