Hey, I have a problem with my i11s rudder. I haven't used it for a few months and last time I realised that that the rudder isn't straight anymore. I guess the way I've packed it last time was wrong, or not sure what happened, but now the rudder is crooked to one side (that black plastic part of the hull was turned to one side, is not straight in the middle anymore). It is still usable but deploying and retracting the rudder doesn't really work anymore.

Any idea if / how this could be fixed?

Thanks!

Heat and maybe inject the hollow space with expanding foam?

Thanks, I was thinking about heating it up and trying to reshape it. Any idea on how much heat it can take and whether it's safe and won't destroy parts of fabric, glue, etc? Is the black part completely separate that can be filled with foam without the foam entering the interior of the inflatable part?
