Morse Marine Controls

Hello

I am removing my PITA Edson Giant Steering Pedestal / Compass / Telescope mount with Giant Stupid Wheel in a Tiny Cockpit and replacing said hugeness with a tiller. I need to relocate the two engine functions: reverse/neutral/forward and throttle.

Has anyone had experience with Morse Marine controls? I am looking at their single lever dual function unit, but I know these are for power boats.

Anyone know of Morse Marine products?

Thank-you

Michael

Yup... I have Morse controls on my new boat. Been using them very frequently over the past month or so. Very reliable so far.

I had new Morse controls fitted three years ago for my twin diesels. Morse controls are absolutely flawless.

Good. Then this is a good move. Maybe if I was 30LBS lighter I could get around the pedestal and wheel. But good Lord!! I have come to despise that piece of equipment. PM to you Ram. Le t me know your price.
