Nice job young man. I guess there's hope for me since I'm 0 for 7 on the tunas this season.
I use the exact bleeding method as aquachico but use WestMarine brand of Hydraulic Steering Fluid($19.99 a bottle). Takes about 20 minutes.

If you have kids with you or you don't care to hear vulgar language, 72 can be bothersome. 68 is the other channel many communicate on as well.
Street trees are another concern. My set -up is about 11'-6" and sometimes brushes against the bottom of the tree canopies.
Enjoyed the video...
Persistence and using your knowledge paid off. Awesome report and Congrats to your success.

You guys smashed it good, especially calling it quits by 11:30. Excellent report and keep them coming.
Which models are they for?
Sounds like a fun day.
Nice job finding them and putting one on deck.
