    Hydraulic Steering Brands

    I am looking for two sets of hydraulic steering for my friends boat. He has a 29-foot Fountain with twins, and he wants to install hydraulic steering.

    Can anyone recommend a good brand for him to buy? Each engine has around 600hp, so he will need two good sets.

    Too Old, I have Marine Machine but not to the Helm. How much would that be? I have a tilt wheel I would like to keep, will that work. I would bet it is easy compared to installing the rams and drive plates/hoses. I can't beleive how nice it steers, nothing like it.

    I Know of a person who can install it for you in Holland. Not all brands of hyd steering adapts to tilt helms.Only a couple are set up to accommodate.
