July August 2008 Fishing Report
Well yet again another week of windy
weather buffeting our coast line and making it impossible to get offshore.
This would have to be the worst patch of
weather for many years that I can remember.
So its back to the maintenance in
preparation for when the weather finally breaks. We covered batteries in short
last week, this week we look at steering units whether it be cable or hydraulic
both need constant attention, with cable stretching of the inner cable occurs
if the cable is not lubricated at least a couple of times a year.
Hydraulic generally requires a top up of
oil and some air bled out of the line and most importantly the air bleed screw
cleaned on top of the unit. Be sure to use the recommended oil, next grease the
tilt and trim bar and the turning shaft ,you should notice the water coming out
as you apply the grease.
Well the forecast over the coming weekend
is not looking a lot better so watching some fishing on the box might be the
next bet to getting your fix of fishing .
“Till next week Go on get out there”.
