Easy Stick Steering.
OK, I had this 1950ís 14 ft Starcraft, and a 25 hp Evinrude electric start. What was I going to do with it?
Using it alone with tiller, all it would do was stand on the
Transom. Needs forward controls. Ezy glide stick steering is almost $400.
Well I decide, to join new and old technology.
Cable Pulley Steering, and Stick Steering. I am not the first to do this, as I have seen, small crab boats with it.
It can be done in the center, as I have done. Or on the side.
You start with an aluminum, mounting/swivel plate attached to the hull. Then thru bolt you stick to the mount. It should move freely. Now you have to build a guide for the stick. Just aluminum stock, with a spacer on each end.
You will need 6 pulleys, and mounts. Only 4 of these http://www.iboats.com/Steering-Cable...-view_id.38768
Cable, (Lowes) and the 2 smaller pulleys for the motor connection
You also need 2 eyebolts, one on motor, one on stick.
