|Post subject:||Steering noise|
We have 2011/2012 AIs. Last weekend on Saturday, no issues. We start out the next day and my wife complains of noise and hard steering. I check her boat and it is making a groaning noise that seems to come from the assembly beneath the deck that the steering lever actuates.
The next weekend i go out solo on Saturday - no issues. I start out Sunday and now my boat is doing the exact same thing... odd. I can't tell if the steering is harder or if it just seems that way because of the noise.
Any ideas? Is there something that need lubricating or adjusting?
Thanks in advance

When it happened to me, it turned out to be the spring in the hull under the handle rotating until it's edge scraped when the tiller turned. I just located it by feel through the center hatch and rotated it and it stopped. Hopefully yours is as simple.
