Lightbulb Add POWER STEERING to your SeaStar manual hydraulic steering - BRAND NEW

If you're looking at this ad, you probably already know what this is .

This power assist steering pump makes your manual Seastar hydraulic boat steering into power steering.

It's brand new, never installed because I can't put it where I wanted to. Have box manual and all parts.ALSO comes with 2ea 4' seastar hydraulic hoses.
Retails for $2044.00, Hoses are about $120pr, selling for $1500 plus the ride



Experience the “automotive style” comfort hydraulic steering can achieve with the new and innovative SeaStar Power Assist.
Designed for difficult and hard to steer boats.
It is a simple add-on for all O/B, I/O, I/B powered boats, equipped with standard hydraulic steering.
Use with single outboards with more than 150 HP, heavy 4-stroke outboards, twin and triple outboards, and inboards where rudder torque makes wheel effort heavy or uncomfortable.

• Dramatically reduces wheel effort
• Easy installation
• Simple “add-on” to existing SeaStar manual system (up to 2.0cu. in. helms)
• Number of turns lock to lock remains the same
• Compatible with autopilots
• Wiring harness included
• Capable of floor or wall mount. No need to purchase extra kits

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.

PS. I have two F250's and manual steering. I feel your pain!
