I put hydraulic steering on my boat a few years back and it made a huge difference for the better. Its not that hard to install, but I would add two feet to the length of your mearsurements for hose length. What type of unit are you looking at? I put a Teleflex sea star unit on my 140hp OB and made the mistake at first of putting the wrong hoses on the port and starboard output sides of the pump. Discovered my mistake when we launched the boat and steering was going in the oppsite direction. Got a few laughs out of my buddy when I made him drive the boat without telling him about the mistake. Accused him of hitting the sauce early.
