Anyone have a good source for a great price on the Hy-Trac/Hynautic steering?

What's the matter with seastar? Go to www.teleflex.com and see. May want to keep an eye on EBAY, they sell it there occasionally. The hydraulic steering is a dream after having twin-cable steering.

acseatsri-
I had Hy-trac/Hynautic on my previous boat (with a 225hp OB) so Iím familiar with it. I found it very easy to install and I really like the clean simple way the hydraulic cylinder mates to the engine.

Iím familiar with SeaStar and Iím sure functionally itís quite good. But for the aforementioned reasons Iíll be buying Hynautic (again).

Now back to my original questionÖthe best price Iíve found so far on the Hynautic OB800-11H system is $693.57Öanyone know where I might do better.

You probably have the best retail price, usually around $750 and list at $1030 (meaningless price!) for the Hy Trac system --- Morse Controls also offers Hynautic 2 and 3 line system for heavier applications ---

Bigz-
I thought the price was pretty aggresive too, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.

That price is from seamar.com has anyone done business with these guys?

Thanks
Chris

Seamar.com, Seattle Marine and Fishing, is an old well established business here in Seattle. Very reliable.

Point of note, Teleflex now owns Morse and Hynautics. The last that I have heard is that they are going to keep the Hynautics line intact but will be cutting the Morse line back somewhat.

OK...new low price leader...Cabela's is selling the system for $639.99.

I don't think I'm going to find it much less expensive than that...time to pull the trigger and place the order

I purchased a "new" NFB system from Cabela's. Make sure you get a new system, not a return from another customer. I did get a return, but kept it as I had run out of time.
