I picked up a 25hp Johnson outboard yesterday. It came with a control box and cables for the throttle and transmission, as well as a steering wheel and cable. Currently, there's really no place or room in the boat for a steering wheel so I'm trying to be creative. Right now I'm thinking I have two options:
1. Mount the steering wheel to the side of the boat and use it that way (instead of being mounted in front of the driver)
2. See if there's a box, similar to the one for the throttle and transmission, that controls the steering. Or perhaps a new box that has a lever for steering, throttle and transmission.
I had originally intended on getting a tiller steer motor, but this motor I picked up was such a good deal I couldn't pass it up. I'm trying to preserve space in this relatively small boat, so adding a console isn't really an option.
Thanks for the suggestions.
