Hi

I asked a very similar question some months ago, and got lots of good advice. Ive now had a BayStar system fitted to my Avon/90HP 4 stroke Suzuki and it has indeed changed the boat totally.

Hi Richard,

Sorry about that. I was really looking forward to coming but I didn't get home until 4.30am and then I slept through my alarm . It looks like you had a fantastic time too..

I'm also looking for components for hydraulic steering, this time to fit bravo's not o/b's, but if on yer search any good used bits I could use crop up, please give me a shout. I'm sure a 'finders fee' of some description would be forthcoming.

Is there something wrong with Vetus hydraulic steering? £395.98 inc vat for a complete outboard kit to 175Hp. I've got a vetus helm pump on an inboard diesel and can't fault it, certainly seems good and strong. Anyone know better?

Fit to a Suzuki 70hp?

The manual cable on my boat is knackered, and was thinking of just replacing it......now I'm wondering if hydraulic is the way to go (This would find favour with my 6 year old who complains he can't turn it fast enough!)

What is the cost difference (approx obviously) between a manual kit and a hydraulic suitable for a 70hp?

Hi Pete,

Good to see you at the weekend.

I haven't yet done the maths on the Seastar kit but the Baystar prices quoted on the K4+ site appear to be just the retail price suggested by Hypromarine with the necessary VAT added on. Or am I missing something?

I got a very, very good deal on Sea Star kit. The Bay Star helm was pretty flimsy.

Spent the day installing it and still not finished. Had to take the A-frame off, relocated the fuel filter and outboard lock. Anyway should be finished ready for a test tomorrow afternoon

I would highly recommend anyone after Sea Start kit to contact Hypro Marine. They are extremely friendly, helpful and they’ll do you a good deal too. They're located in Lymington and have just about everything in stock.
