Make the hole slightly larger when you remove the rail, then use a nice thick bead of silicone or 4200 in there to keep it from chafing on the glass. that will seal it and cusion it. Or use a grommet as stated above.

THREAD RESURRECTION --

question for everyone - I'm in the process of upgrading all of my steering components. Helm replacement and cylinder upgrades. I currently have a single seastar cylinder and I'm changing it out to dual Tournament cylinders.
So what's the simplest way for me to parallel the cylinders together with hoses? The pic below shows what I've got coming out of the stern. I will not be changing that setup. Meaning, I won't be installing a T fitting or whatever inside the transom and have four separate hoses coming out of the stern. It will be those two hoses coming out.
But from that exit point, then what? Put a T fitting there and run separate hoses to the cylinders or put a T fitting on one of the cylinders and run the two new hoses across to the other engine?

seal up the hatches, re-caulk the bracket while you have easy access.

I have no clue about the steering stuff

Coores, I purchased from Norman the steering he uses for my new project. But when I was there he has a new twin engine setup with dual rams that is really nice, and it sits in the middle of the two motors. I don't remember which one it was. But he may be able to get it for you.

Call Mike at Uflex in Sarasota

He’s setting the new standard in customer service in the hydraulic steering industry

I’ve been to him 2x in the past year .... once for an AP install and once for rebuilding a UFlex ram. His knowledge and generosity is second to none.

thanks guys. I already have all of the Seastar stuff. Actually purchased it all a few years ago and it's been sitting in my garage. Finally getting around to putting it on the boat.

Coores this is the one I recently purchased from Norman. Looks like seastar is discontinuing it. But I always liked this model.
