Hi guys, asking for advice
I have an achilles 24 with an old inboard, and for this sailing season I preferred to install a Honda
BF5 on a bracket port side. The engine
is quite powerful, I'm happy with but the controll is not easy, I do prefer to stear from the cockpit
. So I have to install the remote
The problem is the price
. I found new remotes from Honda
A kit for install the remote
cabling - £52
The remote control box
- about £280
I think is pretty expensive and searched on eBay but Honda stuff sells expensive, and no much choice in remotes.
So, the question: could I buy ANY remote control box
and install it on BF5? On eBay are plenty of Mercury
, Quicksilver and other used stuff for cheap
and I wonder if it would work for me?
Thanks for any help or suggestion!
