Washer on Mamba Steering
Alfred from Göteborgs Båtelektriska made me aware of a possible weakness on a Hallberg-Rassy 46 and possibly others.
I checked on mine and sure enough I had the same problem!
The upper and lower bolts of the ball-joint on the steering arm between the steering gearbox and the rudder shaft had a too small/thin washers. A new special thick washer needs to be made, so you don’t loose steerage. If you own a Hallberg-Rassy with a Mamba-Drive, I suggest you check that washer on your steering! If your washer is too small, the arm risks to jump off and you loose your steering!
