Who do you use for ordering Seastar hydraulic steering seals? I bought the cheap ones from Amazon and they only lasted a couple months. Looks like Boats.net doesn't have any. HC5358

Yep, those are the cheap seals from Amazon that only lasted 2 months. And Boats.net still shows out of stock just like they were yesterday.

The original Seastar seals lasted ten years. That's the ones I'm trying to buy.
