Well, I like the black caulk. I still have the cockpit to do. I bought the BayStar hydraulic steering. It sticks out a little too much. I may work on that after the Gathering. Battery boxes are in (Batteries not included.).

It is the only way to go just don't do like I did on my bay boat and hook the lines up backwards it is a real challenge to drive until you get use to it.

I'm trying to concentrate on the things to get it running for the Gathering. And, use the materials I already have.

Question for all with BayStar/SeaStar hydraulic steering. It says don't cut the tubing. I have 20' of tubing and only need about 10'. I have a good tube cutter. I can't see a problem. Anybody :?: :?

It has been 6 years so my memory might not be 100% but my BAYSTAR system came with plastic tubing. I think one end had swedged fittings installed but the other end used a compression fitting. Cutting to get the right length was suggested in the instructions and that is what I did. But I thought on the SEASTAR they referred to "hose". I assumed those units came with a rubber type hose that already had the fitting attached and there was no way to adjust the length.

Did yours come with tubing and compression fittings? If so I see no problem cutting them.

It's the same on mine, compression one end. I can't see a reason not to cut. I wanted to make sure I didn't miss something.

I have the Seastar hydraulic system and it uses special ORB fittings. I was warned repeatedly in the instructions not to cut their hose. When I first bought the tubing I got the length wrong and called the supplier I bought them from. They sent me the correct length and accepted the others back with no problem (as long as I didn't damage them). I don't know what kind of system you have but mine were not compression fittings. Before you cut them, check with your supplier to see if they will exchange them for the correct length. Nice build Bill, by the way! Skip

I think I may have gotten mixed hardware and instructions. On the wheel end, I just have a raw tube. ORB fittings on the engine end.

I guess I didn't read all the instructions I cut both of mine Bay Star on my center Console and Sea Star on INNOCENCE they have been working fine with no problems.
