Sorry about that, what with 20 hour days and cheap Aussie red, what do you expect!!!

Any way, back to the plot. This is not bad steering and "cheap as chips"



Oh, and if your still there, "Hi Charles, hows it going me old mate, still luv yer. XXXXX"

Just looking at that pic from chrisallse, I see the hydraulic pipes are quite loose looking.
Not having a seastar system, I don't know, but how does that work? - does the cylinder attach to the engine, and the ram stay fixed?..... I have seen something like this on another local rib, and they kept having to replace the hydraulic pipes due to constant bending and unbending / general wear etc... usually ending up with fluid over the deck of the boat near the transom.....

Looking through my manual, I have an Ultraflex 'Drake'(?) front mount hydarulic outboard cylinder - http://www.ultraflexgroup.it/ut/hydrafl/hydrafl.html

Maybe a bit overkill for a 75hp engine, but it's a tidy system that doesn't have too many turns from lock to lock and is very easy to handle on higher power turns in both dirs.

Dirk,

I have a med style rib and the surface tenion of the water broke the old steering ( sod all to do with driving style, honest) and it has a Yam 70 on it. I was thinking of replacing with a cheap Hydraulic and the L & S looks good to me

Any idea how much approx

Not sure, but I think it's a couple of hundred beer tokens, I might be collecting a system next week for a customer so I'll let you know.

You could give Lee a call, but I give better discounts!

So does Aquamarine.

www.aqua-marine.co.uk

An Aussie company, Hydrive do some rather nice stuff, similar to Seastar but better prices, they also do full external as in Mayfair, Latham etc.

Nice bit of kit and there's a distributor in Hants.

The Cylinder is fixed and the Rams Move so the pipes dont flex.
