Dominick, I have a 2006 Bayliner 185 BR with the Mercruiser

Customer Question

I have a 2006 Bayliner 185 BR with the Mercruiser 3.0 / Alpha 1 sterndrive set-up. The steering is smooth when she's on the rack, but two-handed underway. What is the standard steering set-up on this make/model and what can I grease / repair / replace to get her back to single-handed steering? Appreciate any thoughts.

Hi Lou, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.
Are you familiar with the inner transom plate, and where the steering cable goes through the steering guide tube?
