Re: Stiff steering/rudder
Just to hazard a guess judging by where you keep your boat (LI Sound) I'd guess you might have some barnacles and/or other growth slowing your rudder post down.
Reasonable guess, however;
I purchased the boat in Annapolis. The boat was on the hard and the bottom was clean/painted. Rudder was hard to turn from the survey.
