Iím repowering my Wellcraft 238 Coastal with a Ď08 275 Verado. Iím planning on using the standard non power hydraulic system. I had no problem with my Yami 250 2 stroke. Is there a reason I should go power?

You need to drive it and decide. Thereís no other way. It is silky-smooth-one-finger, but hydraulic works just as well with just slightly more effort, that is still very acceptable. Had hydraulics for years, very reliable.

I'd like to hear how this works out.
What is your helm, seastar? What size 1.7?  How many turns stop to stop?
Are you set up with o-ring boss fittings or 3/8 compression?

Well I took the boat out on it first test run. I have some adjustments to do.
As far as the non power hydraulic steering, so far Iím happy with it.
