  • Steering Console...

    Thinking of buying this: http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-15-Inflatabl...item3f00de33b9

    Is there a steering console that exists for this??? Boatstogo.com has one that looks like it would work. Any feedback...

    You can place any steering brand central jockey console, will need a steering wheel, engine remote control box, remote to engine cables (3) including stop switch extension, engine cables hardware & engine turning link. Be prepared to spend at least 1 K + installation/adaptation on this car like driven cracy adventure.

    Personally wouldn't install any central jockey console on top that light alum floor, this sib is intended for tiller control to go fast and jump on non flat water surfaces, so placing non appropriate securing screws on console lower edge and reinforcements under alum floor would be dangerous, as you could be thrown out of sib while jumping waves or in extreme sharp U turns while still sitting on jockey console with your hands on steering wheel and engine on, this has happened with dire consequences to driver & buddy.

      Like sea rider is saying there is no steering accessory package designed specifically for that type of boat. But you could Frankenstein something together nonetheless. Check out this first.

      Here is a nice example of someone who did add the steering like you're suggesting.

      Perhaps a tamer engine option makes the steering setup safer?

      (thanks for the juicy ebay link btw very nice boats)

        Very nice extreme video, those 50 HP engines are real chopper killers, you really need to be extreme and nuts to race those 2 pontoon monsters.

        Nice Aqua Max central jockey console set up, this is a twin side to side passenger confortable alternative to jockey seat consoles, but will need special side alum joinners to install.

        Happy Boating

          @ Sea Rider - Thanks for the picture. However, I can't find anything about it on the internet. Like price info, etc.
