    Steering Helm Play Measurement

    Im seeing something with my steering actually. Running, blocked up I had about ± 2" each direction from center, ( wanted to check becasue it started the end of last season) but now that Im splashed ive been out 3x and sometimes it seems like I have a lot of play. I have to do some troubleshooting. It wanders a lot, Lways did but thats the hull design, this is underway. THe catch is that sometimes it seems fine. I just have to make sure its not me but I've been told the assemblies/ pistons, etc. need to be replaced every now and then. Will followup with what I find...2012 287 SSX 430 hours

    Bottom Paint Questions

    No question, if you pull it Dont paint it. If you slip it you have to paint the bottom and the outdrive - different paints. I swear by Pettit Ablative hydrocoat for the bottom, I use an outboard ablative spray can also by pettit. This season I had to actually use a paint on the outdrive because the actual paint had worn off in some spots, but that should last another 5 years or so with only having to do the ablative spray each season. I keep mine slipped in salt water and splash from, at earliest, April ( but no later than the Kentucky Derby) to Halloween
