MECHANICAL HELM MOUNTING OPTIONS:
SeaStar Solutions offers several helm mounting options to accommodate nearly any preference. These options
are available for all helms, except as noted. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with these options before
ordering replacement steering systems or components.
Mechanical (cable) steering typically comes with 90° mounting hardware for the helm. (Steering shaft is
perpendicular to dash). 20° mounting kits (steering shaft 20° from perpendicular) can be purchased as options.
Rack steering allows variations from 90° mounting in two settings: 10° and 20° from perpendicular. Big-T has two
bezel mounting options, a 2-piece oval bezel which can be configured in either 90° or 20° helm mounting plus a
1-piece 90° bezel which reduces shaft protrusion from the dashboard.
TILT STEERING:
Tilt Steering is an option for all mechanical steering systems. Tilt allows the wheel to be moved in 48° arc, in five 12°
increments. When ordering mechanical Tilt Steering, note that a special Tilt version of the helm must be ordered.
Also, a Tilt Mechanism must be ordered. The best way to order is the tilt module kit.
Tilt helms are similar in appearance to standard mechanical helms, except for the steering shaft. Tilt helms have
a flat ended shaft with a cross hole for connection to the “universal joint” in the tilt mechanism. (Standard helm
shafts have a threaded end.) Please also see the “Dimensions” section for more information.
