So i am going from the marina to the public launch to trailer the Salty Dog so I can take it to Long Island fishing when I get a chance and get it out of the yacht club for the season. My friend helps me pulling out of the slip at the Newburgh Yacht Club by pushing the stern outward, while I grab the boat on the Port side to face the bow out to the river. All good so far. So I'm facing the right direction, move the steering wheel where I want to go and NOTHING! No steering. My friend (Thank God) is still there by the dock, he helps me back into a different slip. So after a few common choice curse words, I have steering back!?! WTH? So I venture out to the river with good steering until I get it on plane, no steering. I limp it to the Boat Ramp and get it on the trailer. Bring her home and take a look at the SeaStar steering system. It looks like I have a leak on the shaft seal. I ordered a replacement kit and will install it next week.
