New Steering Maintainance Video

Here is a new new video I just completed for Ocean Navigator Magazine and Edson Marine. It covers the basics of maintaining the pedestal end of a chain and cable steering system. Hope it is help to someone.
brokesailor and Fau like this.

Very nice I really liked the annotations especially the one about the lost screws. You left out all the below deck stuff is that the next installment?

Yes the below deck one is in process, I will then do one on interfacing autopilots followed by one on rudders. Not sure about the hydraulic one but it is a good idea and I will see what I can do.

Re: New Steering Maintainance Video

Very helpful video! I was surprised by use of both T-9 and 30 wt motor oil on the chain. I thought we liked the dry-lube stuff best since it won't collect dust and dirt. Different rule of thumb for chain, I guess? Thanks!

I think the problem with the dry lube is when it get wet. It would be hard to keep the steering always dry. The T-9 is to protect the chain from corrosion while the oil helps lube the chain rollers. I suppose there is no perfect solution but then it is a boat!

Re: New Steering Maintainance Video

i guess maintenance on the hydraulic is basic: fluid level, leaks, and air bubbles. that's it
