The other night I was on plane, on glass, and my boat would every now and then hook hard left. No, it doesnt have pyronnies disease, I already checked... anyway I am thinkin its lacking hydrolic fluid. So I bought some, but cant seem to find the place to dump it into. I have a 97 skeeter... can anyone help me out?

at the top of the steering helm is a little cap, open it up and pour it in. you can also use ATF fluid. Same thing goes for your tilt and trim.

I have already looked at the area. I am pretty sure I have hydrolic steering, there are 2 cables coming from the motor running up the right inside of the hull to the steering area. Bottom line, steering is very easy in the boat, is there a 3rd type of steering assembly?

Fish look for something loose.
check to where your rack bolts to the steering helm , If you have one rack there should be 4 bolts
Check to see if you cables are loose where they go into the motor.
if you have anti feedback steering you can shake your motor and see the loose spots.
If you dont have anti feed back steering have someone hold the wheel while you shake the motor back and forth.
Check engine mounts to transom(rare but it happens)
the other thing is you could not have been fully trimmed and you have a small nick on the pad of your boat . when the water hits this it will pull the boat (again rare)
