Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Convert Stick Steering motor to Steering wheel

    I am looking to buy a motor for my boat. It is a side console with steering wheel. Found a stick steering motor for a good price, but was wondering how hard and around how much it would cost to convert the motor in my boat. I have read some other posts about tiller steering, is this the same principle? Thanks for the help....

    That is exactly what tiller steering is. I don't know how much or what it would take to convert, but are you sure you dont want tiller steering? What kind of boat, what are you using it for would make a big difference in answers.

      It is not difficult to convert stick (not tiller) steering to your wheel and cable once you know exactly what you have.

      I am going to move this to Non-repair outboard topics, where you can probably get plenty of help.

          I was under the impression a tiller driven motor you have to control from the rear of the boat, and stick steering is made for the front. It is a shift stick you move back and forth to turn the motor. It is a 15' fiberglass bass boat, so I am not interested in the tiller. Thanks for your help guys, but I've decided to break down and get my motor fixed. EDIT

            If it is a stick steer then it has a steering cable and should hook right into your existing boat, not posting what engine and year makes it alittle hard to say.

            What is wrong with your currant engine?
