Cool

Thanx for all the feedback....I think I am going to go with the Mayfair system.....I got the best price from them, I like Marine Machine also.....but it is pretty pricey....

SP1,
Did you call John? My wife said you sent an e-mail to the house, I haven't had a chance to read it, I will read it tonight when I get home.

I have the WPM add-on system. Easy to install and works great. WPM is very helpful and willing to work with you.

Check out Worldclassmarine.com

I boght a full hydaulic system this past summer from them. They are not weel known yet...but have signed several oem deals with manuafactures.

Very nice system...all stainless steel..cylinders have 1 inch rods,,all clevis joints no ball joints and best of all the full system cost me mid $4,000 vs $5,500 to $6,000 for latham pf marine machine.

It's worth the phone call.

We deal with all of the above manufactures, and they are all good, and all a bit different. Price seems to be the determining factor most of the time when my customers are shopping steering.
I have dealt with World Class Marine, Paul Everett for many years. This is a high quality product, and he is great to deal with. He also has a patent on his new tie bar.
When shopping look for the product with highest grade of stainless you can afford, and all SS, no aluminum componants. A "Wing plate" system is prefered over a "sterndrive bracket" style system.

I put a full IMCO system on my Top Gun and it is awesome. It's like power steering on a car but firm when you need it. Additionally, I mounted the rams between the drives and it looks sweet. Going on 2 years not a pit in the finish or a problem with it's performance.
