33 Bavaria Cruiser Steering
I understand this boat was fitted with a Whitlock (Lewmar) Constellation steering mechanism.

1). Does anyone have a copy of the user guide?
2). How many turns on the wheel lock to lock? (1.8 ????)

Not sure, if this is what you were looking for:

(not permitted to post links) but do a quick search at lewmar .com, easy to find.

And, not quite sure... never meassured it... but next time... ill try to remember your question.

Thanks. Lewmar says 1.5 turns lock to lock. I measured 1.0 turns on the vessel I chartered. Weird.

If you would have made me guess, i would also say 1.0 turns. .5 one way, 0.5 the other way. But nexttime at the boat, ill check it.
