    STX-15F wouldn't steer right

    I had a strange issue yesterday when I took my STX-15F out in the harbor yesterday. I had been jumping waves, everything was working fine, headed back toward the boat ramp and hit some chop in the harbor, tried to turn right to avoid an oncoming boat but nothing happened. Only left turns worked. For the next 5 minutes I had to continually make left turn loops to get where I needed to go, but then all of the sudden the right turn started working again. When I pulled it out I checked the steering cable and nothing looked abnormal. Any ideas of what happened? Thanks.

    The only time I've had issues like this was the steering cable was broken, or I was dragging something behind me and it would only steer one way.. I'd have someone hold the nozzle to add pressure and test the cable again..

    Broke cable is my guess! Cable can also fall off the bracket deal under the steering (in the hull) and youll get a similar effect

    stick hung in intake grate on one side then it finally came out is my opinion. However inspect all stearing parts/cables for possible damage just to be safe befor you ride again. Tommy Jordan
