Steering gear


Hi Alfred.

Your answer will depend on the fishing boat.
For really small boats, with an outboard motor on the back, the motor will be on a pivot joint, and have a handle in front. You point the running motor side to side to steer the boat.

Larger boats with outboards will have a steering wheel with a mechanical linkage to an outboard motor or motors that will pivot them side to side to steer.

Larger fishing boats, especially commercial boats, will have an inboard engine and prop shaft, a fixed external propellor or propellors, and a rudder that is connected with a mechanical linkage to the steering wheel or ships-wheel to move the rudder side to side and steer the boat by deflecting how the water flows by when under way.

Hoping this helps.

Why does my mercury outboard idle perfectly but stall out under load?


Your carbs are probably dirty. Remove the carbs and clean out all jets and passages with carbcleaner and compressed air.

I have a Mariner outboard engine which requires the water pump to be removed for repair. The gear shift linkage once disconnected from the oprating lever will not pass through the casing in the engine...


In order to disconnect the gearshift linkage from the gearshift operating handle, a safety clip was rotated about 90 degrees clockwise. Once in this position, if you pull the safety clip towards you, it comes completely out, which then permits the gearshift rod to seperate from the operating lever.
