Items from Steering and Jet nozzle before and after sand blasting.
It looks a little agricultural and it is - before blasting
After blasting, much better
Jet outlet with steering blades in situ
Again much better after blasting
Steering blades after blasting, but these will be replaced by stainless steel units
The reverse slider after blasting
The steering gear. This is what attracts me to the boat, how primitive is that, but
it has worked for 54 years, which must say something.
A little bit of blasting, cleaning and painting and they look a lot better.
Missing, bearings, stops, stainless slider rails, steering paddles, steering bush,
bolts and rubber seal.
Much improved from picture top left to below
