    Default Problem with steering

    I have a 1983 30ft Scarab S-Type w/twin 330 TRS outdrives. I am experiencing while driving at any speed on plane a condition where my steering veers on it's own either to the left or right. When I compensate to the opposite side it veers drastically to the other side & I cannot control the direction of the boat. First thought was engine Sync but the meter seems to show even when this happens, next was that one of the outdrives was somehow moving up and down on it's own. The power trim indicators do n ot work but I have driving performance boats since I'm 12 years old and I look back to the wake & I do not see any indication of that on either side. PLEASE HELP

    Sounds like bow steer to me? Is this happening trimmed up or just all the time. If all the time I would check loose steering cable or slop in the cable then go forward to the the wheel or rack. MLAOP.
