I was perusing las year's Eddie Marine catalog and came across an interesting alternative to the hydraulic steering expense, especially for moderate powered single applications.
The literature states:
- Low cost alternative to expensive hydraulic add-on systems.
- Eliminates worn & broken steering, & tie bar joints.
- Reduces blowout hazard
- Controls steering shimmy.
- Improves steering repsonse, while giving you more control.
- Dampens excessive out-drive shock & vibration.
- Ten stage velocity sensing valving system, becomes progressively stiffer with speed.
- Eliminates the danger of the boat turning violently in the event of steering failure.
Single cylinder kit approx. $400.00
Dual cylinder kit approx. $790.00
Does anyone know anything about these and if so, what do you think about it as a mild upgrade?...
