Hi Stripbait, I don't think adding power-assist would make a difference, and in fact would add one more layer of complexity. I have the same rig, (2013 2520 XLD, 300 Yamaha), and the only issue I've had with the steering was I needed to bleed the air bubbles one time about two years ago. I have just now (yesterday) logged 1000 hours of running time, and the steering works great. An added thought; this boat steers so easily, effortlessly, that I see no need for adding 'power-steering/steering assist'.

Where is the squeak noise coming from, at the helm or at the motor? Do you have second station?
