Steering on a 1927 Chris Craft
by Jay Davis
I have a 1927 26' tri cockpit chris craft.
The steering is extremely difficult to use, have put new grease in the steering box and made sure the steering linkage was free and lubricated.
Is there a bushing in the steering column or is there something else I could look to to fix the problem.
Thanks in advance for any infornmation

Thank all of you for your input, problem was found at the bottom of the steering column where the bushing was driven into the shaft and therefore restricted the movement of the steering rod.
We honed out the bearing and steering improved 90 percent.

I am well on my way to build two of these style boats with a jet-ski engine as apposed to an outboard. My fiberglass is from a military runway repair
