    After just one or two outings in my Aquanaut, I find my boat with a skeg that does not easily retract or drop down. I assume the culprit is a kinked cable. The boat is now located in the Seattle area but was purchased at Alder Creek in Portland so taking it back to the dealer is not without some hassle.
    I am looking to see if anyone has any instructions or can point me in the right direction on how to disassemble and repair?

    Thanks

    your link is to a watch . . . so if this isn't spam, here's a real link to a lot of skeg info:

    One of the first items to check that might not be mentioned is that the housing is an integral part of the actuation mechanism and must be firmly/rigidly attached to the skeg housing as well as to the actuator housing.
