Hynautic

SeaStar offers rugged 3-line Hynautic Heavy Duty steering systems for most work and pleasure vessels up to 70 feet.

Heavy Duty helms combine one or two bi-directional axial piston pumps with pilot check and make-up check valving. The result is a unit which prevents rudder feedback, is very efficient (even at low RPM), and is immediately adaptable to multi-station use.

A wide choice of helm displacements and cylinder configurations make it easy to spec a system which can handle a variety of large boat performance requirements and accommodate most user preferences.

Features

• Low friction heavy duty hydraulic steering.
• Helm/cylinder combinations for most inboards. Marine grade materials.
• Heavy duty helms available in three displacements, to accommodate most applications and user preferences.
• Helms available with 1” straight shaft or 3/4” tapered. Mount facing any direction.
• Quick air purge relief valve.
• Fluid fill at remote reservoir.
• Heavy duty brass cylinders. Two-axis articulation. Easy installation for single or dual rudder vessels.
• Meets or exceeds applicable standards.
• Accepts most steering wheels.

 



BayStar Inboard (International only)

Built in the same tradition as SeaStar Inboard Steering, these BayStar Systems are designed for relatively low torque inboard applications, including inland waterway boats and other low speed displacement vessels. The systems are easy to install with “cut-to-length” tubing. Available in complete kits or by individual components. (If unsure of total steering loads, contact SeaStar Solutions® Technical Support for assistance)

Features
• Compact cylinder design.

Engine Controls Cables (International Only)

A complete range of control cables to suit all applications available in “standard”, “midrange” and “supreme” styles. Gen II type cable designed specifically to be used with Mercury 4000 series controls.

Features

• All cables have stainless steel end terminals
• Standard cables use stainless steel Lubricore core wire for smooth operation and long life
• Midrange cables use a heavier jacket and stainless steel Lubri-core
• Supreme cables use a specially coated core wire



XTREME Control Cables

With it’s unique splined core XTREME delivers unparalleled smoothness and efficiency – with hardly any lost motion – even in the longest and most complex cable routings. This gives superior feel at the control, performance that until now was considered ‘impossible’.

Traditional cables vary by the stiffness of the core wire and how tightly it fits in the casing. Thus the classic trade-offs that have existed in control cable design: Stiffer core/tighter fit offers less lost motion, but is harder to move. With longer and more complex runs, cable movement becomes progressively more difficult.

More flexible core/looser fit has an easier feel, but allows more lost motion. This approach leads to an overall sloppy feel, RPM loss or difficult gear engagement.

These trade-offs aren’t an issue for cables with XTREME technology because they are different — really different!

SeaStar Solutions®’s unique XTREME technology incorporates a patented splined core. Ridges on the core allow a close fit with the cable’s inner liner, but with minimum contact, so the core glides back and forth smoothly like a skater on ice.

RESULT: a control cable with easy movement AND minimum lost motion.
