      The boat was built in Aug 2000 and I've got something more than 11K
      miles on the odometer including a trip to Bermuda and the BVIs.
      The rudder's been hanging up since launch this spring and getting
      worse. This last weekend I disconnected the wheel steering to use the
      emergency tiller, eliminating the wheel as a possible source of the
      problem. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to see for sure and can let
      you know.
      I did read the write up on Eos Thanks,
