have any of you installed stick steering on your jon boat ?
i have a 14ft flat bottom aluminum jon boat with a 25hp yamaha two stroke tiller engine.
i would like to install stick steering on it, making it easier to drive. i also would like to either install a twist throttle on the steering stick, maybe from a motorcycle, something like that.
im wondering if i could just fab up a cable system to hook up to the throttle linkage without having to disassemble the factory tiller throttle system ?
steering should be pretty straight forward, but im curious about the throttle system..... not sure if twisting the tiller handle does other things besides opening the carbs, like advance the timing or something ?
any help would be greatly appreciated.
