Had big plans to go out to the Yellow Gravel this morning and try for some grouper. Got to Sherman Cove and hooked the boat up with the water looking like glass. Backed the boat in, parked the car and went and cranked up the engines. Fired right up and things looking good. Anticipation was high and I turned the steering wheel and no steering. This had happened once before and I just added a little juice and it worked fine. I broke out the bottle and added some but nothing happened. Pulled the boat out and bled a little fluid off and replaced it and still nothing.

I guess the next step is to completely bleed the system and try it again. Any suggestions?

mine went out in the pass over the summerand i had to get towed back in. i had to completely replace the cylinder on mine..some sand and stuff had gotten into the old one and tore up all the seals. i tried to just re-do them but the piston inside was all tore up as well

and did you see the game?

i know the feeling, my guy did the same, and i had double trouble, starboard motor was heating up big time, turned out to be a piece of the old impeller lodged in the thermostat housing.
