Re: 1983 Montauk 17 Re-fastening RPS to Deck

Re: Downside of Hydraulic Steering

My experience with the knobs, is that they are much better when the steering wheel is more horizontal than vertical. I had a knob on my 31' inboard powered boat, and it made steering much easier.

To the tube I applied two coats of wax, followed by two coats of Poly-vinyl Alcohol (PVA). I inserted the tube through the damaged hole at the correct angle I ...

Re: 1985 OUTRAGE 18 Bimini Height

Re: WANTED TO BUY: Teak Gunnels for 18' Outrage
