Have you tried breaking the line loose at the ram and turn the wheel that way until the fluid comes out solid. Break the other line loose and turn it the other way.

This boat was built with arnesons, and then some genius took them off and put the 4's.

It is still there. I am thinking of taking the rigging out of this one and building a big V. But this one is a pretty fun boat.

Need to get into it a little. Havn't done anything yet except put in gas and charge the batteries.

I am trying to change an impellor right now. They shoe horned the giant engines into it.
