I was just thinking about this last week. I have been running boats the last 23 years as a paraplegic since an accident in 1988. I have twin 250 outboards and do all the running while the guy's and girls fish. The standard Seastar helm is fine when blue water fishing but when trying to stay on bottom structure I usually have sore arms by the end of the day in rough seas. I will PM you about this.

you will love power steering then. i had this same unit in a big v8 powered bay boat. you could turn the wheel at 75mph as easily as you could at idle.

Billr, this link has it priced at $1499 on sale. I think if a retailer has same price as a private individual, most buyers would rather purchase from someone who would take it back or warranty it. Suggest you sweeten the deal with a lower price.
PS. I have two F250's and manual steering. I feel your pain!
