A new system on ebay from a dealer is 299.00 Seastar .I did look at it and emailed them asking if it was suitable for a twin set but they said it was not.Is your one suitable for a twin set up.regards Peter

Im pretty confident all hydralic steering sytems can handle twins! but depends on weighting!

Ive been involved with a twin 40hp rig which was suposed to be a single engine only kit. The system was rated at 200hp+ so we added a simple, adjustable tie bar and works perfectly!

I'm also aware that some of the larger more expensive systems are capable of 'true' twin systems using the same helm pump, an extra steering cyclinder and 2 special 2-way boxes! This was heavy though (twin evi's 225 but non counter rotating originally) and soon converted to power assisted !

The set up I,m hoping to get needs to be small as there is is very little room .(the seariders are quite narrow)either side of each engine.
