Remote Gear Change

The boat now has remote control of the throttle and steering. Both are electrical linear actuators. The gear shift, R-N-F, is still manual. Any ideas or experience with doing this with any kind of actuator? Thanks

Re: Remote Gear Change

The engines in question are two Mercury 15HP outboards on a catamaran.

Thanks for any advice.
