hi
I called gareth about 50 times and failed to get a hold of him he was to call me back numerous times and never done so and when I eventually tracked him down he wanted to send an engineer to me at my cost to view the job before he could give me a price

I have a fully refitted Magnum27 Sport with a pair of 383ci Dart/Bontoft motors.

Very similar setup to your Pantera.

I fitted a full Mayfair twin ram Bravo kit to my boat from CP performance It`s top quality, solid and very reassuring with 900hp + up behind it.

Yes you can buy something cheaper, but what`s your life worth when it all goes wrong ??

Go full hydraulic with external rams, pricy but you will not regret the investment. Latham is top notch.

I may have a possible price sensible option for you if you are still looking for a external steering system.

Please PM me if you are interested.
