I neglected to mention that I have a wheel and not a tillar.

Thanks again,

The prior owner must have run into a salesman that commonly sold ice boxes to Eskimos.

Get rid of the wheel, once you solve the riddle the 360 degree rudder.
A wheel in a boat that small just makes the boat harder to sail and takes up cockpit room.

That's a good boat design, by the way. I know a couple that has put many hundreds of miles on their S2 26, on summer vacations in Puget Sound and the Gulf Islands. That particular boat was converted to a Betamarina diesel IB several years ago, and travels to distant cruising grounds on a 3-axle trailer.
