Hydraulic steering hose popped

We were having a good day on the water today. One of the hydraulic steering lines to the baystar system busted. Has this ever happened to anyone? Luckily, my backup steering system got us home.

What let go, the hose material or the fitting?

Hopefully not a big job to pull the new one in; Kind of dread doing that on my boat, and access isn't horrible there.

It looks like the hose material gave out and busted cleanly and completely at the helm fitting. The baystar system hoses are cut to fit at the helm so I think i can just refit the hose back on. Kind of scary that it would fail like this though with only a few months of use. We were about 40 yards from shore over there by sutro baths in SF with all the waves smashing into the rocks :|

As You mentioned " The Baystar system hoses are cut to fit", are those the hard plastic type
hose You are having?

If so, have been told that they are not suitable for OB use? I also had the same delivered with the Baystar set, but they are meant for inboard use only.

I was so disappointed by the plastic hoses when I opened the box I'm going to get some proper ones made up by my local hydraulic hose firm.

I ran that system on my old 20' Rib with a Honda 90 for years.

Most hydraulic hose firms use BZP or similar plating on the hose ends. I find it's "special order" for stainless ends.

Oh and about 5x the price.
