A friend of mine fabricated a kicker steering system using a hydraulic tilt that he had from another boat that he mounted sideways (up was left and down was right). There was no speed control and there was a cable that you had to drag around, but all in all it was a great system. I have one of the rods that connects to my outboard so I use my main steering wheel I like it, but would rather be able to wander around a bit. Those TR-1ís are the catís meow, but are not in the budget. What other ideas are there for steering the kicker?
