Re: Hydarulic Steering

I ordered the hydraulic line on the internet. I don't recall what I paid for it, but it was in the neighborhood of a dollar or two a foot. I bought the compression end fittings at Ace hardware for about five bucks. The line I replaced was the compensation line going from the lower helm to the fly br...

Re: Generator raw water pump losing its prime

My gen set was not losing prime on the seawater side, but it was overheating after about five minutes. Basically just enough time to warm up. Of course I checked oil and water before I started it the first time. It overheated and I replaced the raw water impeller. Then tried it a few times, no luck....
