    Default " When I let go of my steering

    " When I let go of my steering wheel, the torque of the motor pulls the boat hard right. Which way should I adjust my trim tab to balance this condition so that the boat will run in more of a straight line without holding the steering wheel? "

    Default " I'm in agreement with Jo

    " I'm in agreement with Joe, but another thing that can be done to elminate that problem is to switch to No-Feedback steering. Depending on the length of cable you need and size of engine it runs between $140 and $200 for the entire system. More or less how it works is by locking the engine wherever the driver leaves it; so, the wheel turns the engine, but the engine cannot turn the wheel.
