Steering Helm with two engines e-tec G2 300

Hi,

 

I'm currently planning buy two E-tec G2 300 and I would like to know the more appropriate hydraulic helm.

 

I have read in the forum that each cylinders is 8.9 cu. in. As I want to have between 2 and 3 turns from lock-to-lock, I think that I need a helm pump of 6~9 cu. in. / rev. Is it correct? 

 

Thank you for your help.

 

Regards

Admiral

On twin engine rigs, one motor, usually the starboard side, has the power assist pump and the port motor is slaved and steered by the tie-bar, no pump.  Use a popular hydraulic helm that your dealer or boatbuilder recommends.

Thank you for the answer, but I have a dout about them.

 

I want to buy the i-dock, so I cannot have a tie-bar, is it correct?

If you want the new $5999 iDock system, you need to order a pair of the special iDock engines to go with it.

 

See your dealer for the details, availability, and pricing.
