Cal 28

Hi Sara, I have a Cal 28 like yours and can I feel your pain all the way down here. It sounds to me like maybe your rudder got jammed from the outboard being thrown in reverse hard. I have an outboard mounted in the lazarete on mine and if the rudder is turned at all from straight forward position while in reverse the water will grab it and slam it all the way to one side or the other. I cannot keep control of the boat while in reverse except for maybe using prop walk to my advantage. I don't have any expert answers for you but I am very interested to see how things pan out for you. She is a tough old boat, if you can just get it unstuck you might be back in business. Good Luck
