Steering inspections

With the coming season it is time to think about inspecting your steering system. For those with the common chain and cable systems this video should be of help. Be sure to watch part 2 as well. If you have any questions or run into any problems let me know. Loss of steering is one of the most common reasons boats are abandoned at sea. A bit of preventive maintenance will go a long way to ensuring you do not have problems.

Re: Steering inspections

Thanks! I did an inspection and maintenance of my system last year. I would have done a much better job if I had seen this video (both of them) first. I might just go back and do it again. (As if I didn't have enought to do ….)
