Does anyone know where I can find the repair procedures for the Compass rudder controls? The rudder control lines in my Compass were routed backwards from the factory. Unfortunately, I didn't notice it until I had already bought the boat and was on my maiden (previously had demo'd two which were correct). My dealer performed the fix under warranty, however the fit and finish is nothing like it was from the factory. The tubes actually slide around in the grommets now which I fear will lead to more problems down the road. Where can I find the proper repair procedure for fixing this and sealing the tubes with the grommets as installed from the factory? This thing is practically brand new, been on the water about 3 hours. I want my boat like it should be new from the factory with properly installed rudder control lines.

Here is how to looked from the factory:

And this is after the dealer fix. The lower tube should come all the way out and have a flare outside the grommet.
