If you have the time and just a touch of mechanical ability they aren;t too hard to fix. Sea Star has an excellent trouble shooting guide on their web site with all the how to on it. Just look at your helm unit and the steering cylinder for the model numbers and look them up. You can get parts locally at Hampton Rubber or most of the marine repair shops. For someone to repair it I would recommend Don at Sports Marine in Newport News, 591-2235.
