Bursted my hydraulic pipes

Was out in da boat today and didnt realise had my jackplate right down and was triming up etc. Then i lost all trim the engine trimmed down well quick on its own. Got the boat out to find the steering ram was chaffing at all 4 pipes jack plate and power trim
Bloody thing now ive gotta get all new pipes and put a stop on the jack plate

Always has to happen when youve got mother and father in law in the boat

I used to get motor factors remake mine, anywhere that makes brake pipes the only thing was they had to reuse the end fittings from the original, worked fine.

Just a thought dude
