I have a single piston sea star system that works well. I haven't had my cc break loose but the screws holding the leaning post down pulled out on me one day so check that while you're at it

i have a single seastar ram on twin 250's, with seastar power assist with a autopilot pump (attached to the power assist). steering was ok without PA...but adding PA, was a dramatic upgrade.

Ditto on power assist being great. I went with that and sea star dual ram tournament series. It's a really nice set up.

I had a single ram with 250's and no problem. Went to dual rams with Zuke 300's. Twice the turns but 1/2 the effort. No problem. Auto pilot I could not live without.

I have a 2016 28FS and may be switching to the full Optimus 360 system. That will make my entire factory Seastar system for sale. I will PM details.
