If you’re one of the many that is a hands on type boat owner that keeps their boat running, serviced, and upgraded, then you’re going to really love the amount of effort Powerboat Nation goes to to bring you what can only be called “Advanced Tech”. For many the thought of upgrading the anemic OEM steering system in their Mercruiser powered boat just might seem daunting. Truth be told with some good planning and taking your time for precision’s sake even you can tackle such a task.
External hydraulic steering is the key to safety and stability for any boat in excess of 75MPH. Recently we asked our head of PBN Tech TV, Rick Bourns to tackle the job for the sake of producing this episode. He rounded up the opportunity and set out to install the most popular and leading brand of hydraulic steering systems, the “MAYFAIR” by Hardin Marines Dual Ram Add-On Hydraulic Steering Kit. Sure the episode takes a bit but we’ve covered it all and were confident that after watching this that even a caveman could do it. So sit back and enjoy as we show you just how easy it is! If you’re curious about adding Hydraulic Steering in the future, this is a much watch video to show you just how easy the process is.
