  1. Hi, Can't tell from photos - Do these snap on to the main line or do they have to be threaded on the main line ? Also , are they designed to work with mono or braid or both ? Thanks, Jack

    Hydraulic steering

    I am considering replacing the rack and pinion steering in my 1999 Starcraft 196 with hydraulic steering. I originally planned to use the Baystar ( 4200) system with Raymarine's EV 100 auto pilot. The outboard is a Mercury 90 hp 2stroke and is connected to a 15 hp kicker via a rigid rod off of the back of both motors. Seastar says that Baystar can only be used with one motor and I would need to use their regular Seastar 6400 system which is larger. While the price differnce isn't that great on the two systems, Raymarine's ev100 AP cannot be used with the larger Seastar pump. Does anyone run the Baystar steering on an outboard with an attached Kicker motor ? If so , have you had any problems with either the Hydraulic steering or the AP ? . Also, what AP system do you use? Thanks in advance Jack

    Starcraft islander restoration

    I would also recommend staying with 1/2 inch panels . If you use 3/4 inch make sure you check all the other interior panels for fit before you do the finish covering. I used marine grade plywood and coated it with penetrating epoxy. A little more expensive but a better job, and let's face it, a new floor is a lot of work and time.Also, all of these older Cuddy cabins retained a lot of moisture, especially if covered with vynil. While you have the floor out, consider improving the drainage in the hull. The poured in foam leaves no space for bilge water to drain to the rear. One solution i have seen is to create a two inch channel down the center of the hull and inset some of the plastic wool used by roofers when installing a "cap" on a roof. You can then refill the channel with foam. Any water you get below the floor will then drain easily to the back bilge pump. Best of luck.
