RUDDER PROBLEM!
Has anyone (else) encountered rudder problems when under power.
My C27 has the old Atomic 4 inboard engine. When under power if I let go of the tiller for just a second the boat goes into a hard over turn that is difficult to recover from. (Sometimes I think the tiller will break before I can get it straightened out again.)

This is beyond annoying to the point of being dangerous. It turns so hard and fast that gear or people could be thrown off.

Any help will be appreciated.
