Repowering a 22 Revenge WT with a bracket and a 2003 Evinrude 225 (I hope). I need a hydraulic steering system and new controls. Any advice on Hydraulic steering makes, etc. I have looked into the Sea Star's on Ebay a bit but not exactly sure what I need and how long of hoses for my boat.

I am also trying to figure out the exact controls I need and that will work with it. I am trying to save some money buy picking them up used or on sale, etc. Any help greatly appreciated.

Most of the info is here and the company is excellent about telling you exactly what you'll need -- you just tell the what boat, engine set up and they'll help you.

I have a sea star set up on my 25 Revenge, it works great and doesn't leak since I replaced the seals -- the only work done on it since the original owner in 87.

Bay star is for lower power applications, and is a little cheaper but your engine is too big.

Hydraulic is the way to go, once you go hydraulic, you'll never go back...

You should be able to rig it yourself, but I wonder really if you will save that much money. This might be one place where I'd let a good shop do it, unless you're very adept.

For a single engine, you want a Sea Star I helm and a front mount cylinder. Get the later design. For a new one, get a quote from Shoreway Marine, as it should be your best deal.
