Broken washer
« on: July 31, 2016, 05:47:50 PM »

I found half of a washer in the cockpit after sailing yesterday. It looks to be about the diameter of the steering shaft. Before I pull the wheel off, does anyone remember what there should be on the shaft so I can be prepared.

Thanks!

Hi Dave, there is large Circlip (outside style) on the shaft behind the wheel. This likely what you found in the cockpit. You will pay 50 times what it's worth from edson. I bought my replacement from an industrial fastener supplier. I could not get it in stainless but the steel one has been there for years since the original broke.

McMaster-Carr carries internal and external stainless steel cir-clips.
