New steering question?

I have a ribeye s650 and the original Yamaha hydraulic steering has spectacularly failed!
So, I need a replacement. The engine is a Yamaha 150 and I have the choice of either baystar (rated to 150) or seastar (up to 300) does anyone have any experience with either? The seastar is significantly more expensive!

Fit seastar, significantly better. Lighter in use than Baystar.

Although Baystar is rated to 150hp in reality I wouldn’t fit it to much above 90hp. The ram mounting on the Seastar is much better than Baystar. Hoses are better too.

RIBase
Plus 1 for seastar. By ones and be done with it, you have room to grow should you change the power unit.

I acquired my replacement hydraulic steering direct from these guys- arrived perfect and its a straightforward fit.
Saved quote a bit too!
