Has anyone had experience with a broken rudder cable yet with their FX Propel. Mine broke yesterday after a long paddle to my fishing destination. It is broken right under the control knob. I am going to start the investigation tonight but wanted to see if anyone has any suggestions or upgrade ideas. I have only used the yak 6-7 times and have been very careful not to hit or drag the rudder itself. Does anyone know if this is covered under any type of warranty since I have only had the kayak for 4 months?
The craziest part of the story though is there was another guy fishing a small mangrove island and I saw him peddling his kayak. So I kindly got his attention and he came over. He was in a slayer 13. I asked him if he had any experience trying to fix this issue and he said not out in the water but he has fixed his cable a couple of times over the last few years. Not more than a minute after this, his rudder cable broke. He ended up placing a small rope on each side of the rudder so that he could hand steer by pulling each rope.
