RE: Rainha Jannota - Choosing the Steering System

This*Capilano*steering (I googled it) is what I have in my*Hydrasport.*Seastaris the brand but it is a very nice unit. When I was shopping steering unit the one I almost purchased was independent of the motors, and had a 5hp ac motor pumping the*hydraulics*and a 20 or 30 gallon*reservoir. It required tubing to be installed schedule 70 pipe and was about 11,000 dollars. Thus I went with what I have, when I mentioned the*gizmo's*and gadgets I wasreferring*to the system I was looking at. This*Capilano*is a very good system and simple if it will work for your boat. Something like that was not an option for my lugger. *When I looked for steering system there are formulas you need to go through to make sure the steering will work. You need to know the size of the rudder, wheel and torque at the wheel. Don't*under size*your unit and if you have a single screw you might be*always*compensating for thrust.
