Stiff 2003 Bavaria 44 Steering
In the process of testing for purchase a 2003 Bavaria 44 w/double helm I noticed that the steering Wheel was remarkably staff.
Iím a 220lb man and found it staff; when my wife, who is 100lb came at the helm she thought that the autopilot was active and that that was the reason she could just not stier tha boat.
The present owner claims that this is just due to lack of use and that after some use it should loosen-up. He sprayed the chains with WD-40, which loosened it up only about 5 to 10 %.
Can this be lack of use? What else can it be?

I'm currently doing some research into yacht market and as part of this am trying to contact Bavaria owners. Are there any owners that are willing to have a quick chat about Bavaria and the yacht market in general?
