hello, im trying to find a way to allow my father whom is handicapped to steer the kicker motor from the drivers seat. i have an aluminum inboard jet boat with a small honda kicker motor on a permanent mount located on the port side. ive seen the auto pilots tr-1 etc, but they appear to be running around 2,000 bucks, which is a bit out of my budget. my father having partial use of his hands, i would like him to be able to use a wheel or a simple lever to steer with. im not too concerned about throttle control or the ability to start/kill motor, having those abilities would be fine, but are not a high priority. ive seen linkages that run from outboard to outboard motors, but ive never seen one on an inboard to outboard application. im open to any suggestions, does need to be able to allow kicker motor to tilt up, and be fairly strong to hold up over time. i am willing to put some money into this but not 2grand.
ty in advance
