Have Boat Questions? Ask a Boat Repair Expert.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today. You didn't ask any kind of question, but I'm assuming your looking for help in correcting the issue. In which case I need a bunch more information from you in order to try and work through the problem. Please answer the questions below the best you can, that will help me help you.
1. Is there are story or history behind this boat? Has it ever been any better for you in the past, or different in the past? Or did you just buy the boat and this is the way it is?
2. Do you know which style steering system you have? Can you look up behind the wheel and get any numbers? Is the steering box behind the wheel round? Or is it kind of a long bar?
3. What is the year/make/model of the boat itself?
my question was I have a 17ft bass boat 90 hp 2 stroke with a trophy 4 blade prop, it pulls like crazy at any speed u really have to hold on to steering wheel.
i dont no what im doing i will go check the steering wheel now
Hey listen man I'm not trying to give you a hard time or anything. We get quesitons from all over. I need to specifically from you what it is you are trying to ask. I know sometimes that not everybody speaks perfect english, or the same dialect of english. So no big deal. The reason I asked you so many quesitons back is because with some steering systems what you describe is normal. They are cheap and they stink and they are hard to steer, but they are cheap so people buy them, but hte issue is normal. But with other steering systems your concern would not be normal, and would indicate a problem. And thats why I need to know exactly what you have. Let me know.
I no your not giving me a hard time...the web page goes to a different page every time i reply, no problem man. it is a 17 ft express bass boat, about 1993 because the merc is a 93, to the best of my knowledge. it always had this problem, im thinking i may need a 3 blade prop and just take off the 4 blade, ive aldready adjusted the fin on the motor.
