  • Change from remote to tiller steering

    A lot of people ask for information about converting their tiller steering to remote steering, but I would like to do the opposite.
    I have a Honda bf40 with remote steering on my 13' Boston Whaler.
    I would really like to get rid of the steering wheel and controls to free up some space in the boat.
    Does anyone know of a conversion kit or parts kit I could use to do this?
    Anyone ever done it?
    Anyone want to trade their tiller steering parts for my remote steering parts?
    Thanks.
    Go fishing.

    There is no conversion kit for the BF40. I just finished researching the tiller-to-remote changeover. I am about to purchase controls, etc. to convert my BF40AKO for use on my 13 foot whaler. I will be keeping my tiller parts but, maybe I could purchase your parts. I have a list of the required parts for my conversion. The parts that I am replacing are the parts that you need so I could make a list for you if that would help.

      Hi there, I'd like to jump into the fray since I am in the midst of trying to convert a BF50 from tiller to remote. Would you be willing to share your parts list?? Because I was going to go though the same exercise. Also would be more than willing to swap parts, if compatible.

        shig,
        Here is the list that I developed from ********** I have not ordered yet.
        You can plug this list into their multiple item search engine and it will pull up a list. Then go to the shopping cart and update the items that have quantities greater than one. I am still shopping gauges as I would like to have the Teleflex (VeeTHREE) AMEGA TACH AND TRIM but can't figure out how to wire them to the new side mount control box. BTW, I spend time in both NJ and VT.

          shero144, thank you very very much! You're the first and maybe only person responding to these many queries about trying to do the tiller to remote conversion who has provided an actual way forward. I have every intent of doing this with my BF50, so will let folks know what it takes.

              I ended up buying a used Honda 45 with a tiller. I installed it on my boat but I'm still not sure if I like it.
