have the leak in steering head drain plug where someone crossed the threads tapped, threaded and plugged.. two new 3.5 metre lengths of hose and fittings.. tomorrow finish fitting the new seals in the hydraulic ram then install the lot back in situ... then... if it still don't work I'll blow up the frickin boat...
don't blow the boat up!,i have a nice 20ft signet similar to a corribee that I will swap for it if you want to walkaway

sounds like you got the problem sorted if all the oil was pissing out from the drain plug

Sometimes I wonder if boating was ever cheap.

Hoping all is good now. Hopefully that will be the extent of the mishaps.
