Cheers Alan thanks for coming back how are you?
Felt a little funny last time out but put it down to all the family on rib. But today even leaving pontoon and out of Girvan harbour couldnít keep it on straight line and took ages to respond over correcting constantly. So Iíll go to Troon in the morning and get some quicksilver steering fluid. Do you think I should get two bottles?

Im good Billy.

I'd get a couple bottles if it was me. You can catch the fluid that comes out the bleed nipples but its usually full of little air bubbles so needs to sit a while before being used for topping up again.

I usually bin it and make sure its always fresh oil going in.

Get yourself a little funnel when you buy the oil.

Fwiw I'd try not to mix atf with steering oil. Personally I'd hang on until I got the right oil, otherwise you're into flushing the system to get it back "as was"
