Helm Mounting Options (Cont.)

SeaStar offers a variety of helm mounting options to accomodate nearly any preference. These options are available
for all helms, except Capilano and Hynautic helms. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with these options
before ordering replacement steering systems or components.
SeaStar hydraulic steering helms typically mount on the dash surface with the steering shaft at 90° to the dash. A
SeaStar rear mount helm is also available for concealed (behind the dash) mounting. Capilano and Hynautic helms
are available in only one mounting style: behind the dash at 90°.
Optional kits are available to reduce SeaStar helm protrusion from the dash, or to cover dash holes left by steering
systems previously installed on the boat.

mechanical rotary steering. (Not for BayStar.)
The 20° Dash Mounting Wedge Kit (HA5419) allows a SeaStar helm to be mounted 20° from perpendicular in any
