I just had open heart surgery and won't be able to get on the water for a while. The steering on the boat is getting a little stiff as it is and it may be time to replace cables anyway but I was thinking about upgrading to hydraulic steering. It would be easier on me to handle the boat while my chest is healing for the next few months after I get cleared to do anything.
I only have a 150HP Yamaha on the boat and I noticed the Baystar is rated UP TO 150hp. Is it worth the extra money to step up to the Seastar hydraulic steering system?
On another note, is there any kind of boat boneyard near DFW I might be able to pull a hydraulic steering off of a Yamaha/Skeeter boat without having to go buy a new system?
