Hi. Just bought an autopilot and need some short hydraulic hoses to tee in the pump to my existing steering system. Is it better to get some made, or would I be better off using the reusable fittings. These are all made of mild steel I think, and while the pump will be in my pilothouse, I'm not sure about the durability of these in a saltwater environment. Anything else I should be aware of for anyone that has installed one of these systems before? Definitely going to be the most complicated DIY project I've undertaken so far.
