THE BASIC RUNDOWN – HYDRAULIC STEERING

So, you’re looking to upgrade your boat from push-pull cable steer to hydraulic steering? A decision which you will not regret! As you may know, the main disadvantages you might face with a ‘push-pull cable steer system’ on your outboard include being more prone to corrosion, the physical strength from a drivers’ point of view turning the motor and even dealing with the power which causes undesired tension that gets sent through the cable which causes discomfort at the wheel. If you’ve faced one or more of these problems, it’s time you invest in hydraulic steering to make driving fun again!

The systems are simple, consisting of three components:
  • A helm pump mounted behind your steering wheel.
  • A cylinder/steering ram mounted to the outboard
  • Hydraulic lines that push the fluid between the two.

Once you have your hydraulic system set up, standard cleaning and re-greasing of cylinders/ helm components can be achieved at your boat service.

Here at Trev Terry Marine, we supply and install the very best when it comes to Hydraulic Steering, and you can’t go past the range of hydraulic systems.

We stock and install two leading brands:
  • Ultraflex
  • Seastar 

    We certainly believe hydraulic steering is a game-changer for boating. A simple but genius piece of marine engineering that will reduce maintenance, and the desired goal of hydraulics eliminating the steering effort. If you think your boat is due for this upgrade, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
