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
