I'm hoping someone might be able to offer some suggestions or guidance. I have a Honda
BF100 (9.9hp) transom mounted on my sailboat. The problem I'm experiencing is that in order to operate the tiller/throttle and shift gears I have to hang off the back of the boat - quite a precarious position and (I think) dangerous.
I've come across PowerTiller
which looks very interesting. It's a little more than I was hoping to spend though. Honda
has an adapter kit with steering
link arm, shift & throttle ready to receive cable from a control box
I thought maybe I could pick up a control box
fairly inexpensively but I'm not sure whether the control box must meet certain requirements (it didn't sound like it when I spoke with Honda, the adapter kit just provides cable connection points) or if any control box should work.
This link (Columns - Obsolete Outboards
) offered some good information on control boxes (assuming it might apply in my situation).
Has anyone done this themselves or are able to offer some guidance?
