FW: tb/pic 2 hydraulic leak/tb
Last week we started passage from QLD AUSTRALIA to BAY of ISLANDS NEW ZEALAND.
About 2 hrs out of the SeaWay I got several times a “rudder response failure” alarm on my AutoPilot #1.
Long story short – I discovered a pool of hydraulic fluid under my bed – after return to my berth in HOPE ISLAND determined that one of the 3 hoses for this AutoPilot was damaged. The chafing was exactly @ the point where the hose enters the glass fiber conduit.
Pls see picture below – I have 2 more pictures which I will send in separate Emails.
Best Regards Teun
