I am having problems with the controls on my Stingray 250CS. Engine is a Volvo D3 inboard (Diesel) 2007 model.

The boat was in winter preservation. We take the stern drive off every winter. I put it on again and tested the trim/tilt which works fine. However, the steering is stuck. Checked all fuses, but no problem there. Seems to be a mecanical block. I believe the connection between the wheel and the stern is all hydraulic, not a wire.

Any ideas on how to fix this? I'm desperate - 2 weeks waiting time for a mecanic.

Nope, the rotary helm is plainly visible, you've got cable steerin',....

At the transom, the cable end goes through the aluminum tube, pull the cable outa the tube, 'n clean the corrosion outa there, then grease the 'ell outa it,.....

While the cable is disconnected, try turnin' the drive by hand, to see how freely it moves,....
