    Need to replace a line on the boat, what do I need to know about hydraulic steering lines before I get into this? Can I get hydraulic hose from a hose retailer, or do I need to buy specific steering lines from seastar???

    I'd replace both hoses, but then I'm paranoid.  :D

    As long as you have the old hose and end fittings
    most hydraulic repair shops can duplicate the hose.
    Just a matter of cost.
