Hello from Teleflex Marine

good day users. My name is Marc Adams, I am a Technical Support rep from Teleflex Marine. My area of expertise is in the Hydraulic Steering, Electronic Shift and throttle and can get you in touch with all other Teleflex Marine products that I do not know about.

our goal on this forum is to assist all users of our products with technical questions of any kind. I will also add updates on a regular basis in regards to maintenance tips, new product information and such

as stated, my main goal is to assist all users with questions in relation to their steering systems on board..

I look forward to assisting all of you where I can, and when I cannot, I will be sure to get you in touch with the right person

NOTE: I will monitor this site on a frequent basis, however I cannot be on here 24 hours a day. If you have a question you can also email me at seastar@tflexinc.com

Hi there Marc, which of your products would you recommend for a 5.0 Metre RIB with a two stroke Yamaha 90 hp? Ideally a package including all parts.

hey there - for this I would recommend the BayStar, kit part # HK4200. This will come with everything that you need and will be a nice addition to this boat

thanks
Marc

No feedback steering would be fine for a 5m with a 90hp, it'll be alot cheaper than hydraulic too.

hey there - I will look into this for you. I should clarify that I am the hydraulic tech rep, so my knowledge with the cable systems is not as extensive as that of hydraulic, but I will look into this for you

Didn't want to step on your toes, don't get me wrong hydraulic would be lovely but if your on a budget NFB cable will do the job fine.

Thanks Marc, Thanks Chewy, I guess I'll check out the price difference and make the decision from there. The hydraulic should be neater on the transom right?

I upgraded from NFB to hydraulic on my old 5.8m with a 90 Suzi. It was a vast improvement, so I'd say, if you can afford it then there is no contest. Go hydraulic.
