I've had Seastar on the last 2 boats, no problems. I've never had a leak or had to do any maintenance apart from a good rinse & silicone spray. And if you decide to fit an auto pilot it's a doddle

easy enough. the hardest part will be getting the hoses through the duct. You should waltz it in a day

hey there - really sorry about the delay in posting back to you.

I am with SeaStar Steering myself, so of course I am a little bias towards our products.

in order to get you the best possible steering solution, can you let me know your answers to the following?
* make, model and quantity of engine(s)
* estimated top speed

of course I will try and steer you (sorry about the pun) towards our products, however you the consumer get to make that final decision, I will help you out with the part numbers and support

thanks and let me know

Marc
