Suggestions and Warnings when Selecting a Mechanical Steering System
Selection of the appropriate mechanical steering system is an important factor for the safety and functionality of your boat. The combination of engine power, hull type and boat speed influence the correct selection of the steering system. The load on the steering system increases with the boat speed and engine power; the torque generated by the propeller rotation in high power outboard applications can make it hard to steer. Big boats with displacement hulls & inboard or stern drive engines, can generate high rudder loads: in these cases a mechanical steering systems will be inadequate and we suggest the use of hydraulic steering. We always recommend consulting qualified personnel when selecting, installing and maintaining a steering system for your boat.
