I have never had a hydraulic steering before on a boat. I have bought the Baystar and today I took the RIB for ride and the sea was rough and can tell you that i am very satisfied with its performance I could have drive without holding the steering

Seastar is just a superior unit to baystar. If you can afford the seastar then allways upgrade and it's all dependant on the helm how you like the ride. For example a 1.7cbi helm is 5 turns from side to side where a 2.4cbi is 3. So you are not turning the wheel forever to get your lump from one side to the other. However the 2.4 is more expensive and believe it or not a heavier system to steer.
Oh and hypro marine lymington are the absolute must for any hydrolic systems. What those boys don't know isn't worth knowing.
