    Because unlike cable steering, which has a mechanical linkage between the wheel and the drive, hydraulic steering uses fluid movement through lines to move the drive side to side. You get some bypass in the helm and thus, no center. I have Latham hydraulic steering on my boat and not having a "center" hasn't bothered me yet - and I'm pretty much OCD.
