Outboard remote control box mounted on tiller

For a few reasons we have to keep our boat at a slip instead of a
mooring, and to make docking easier -- especially when the wind picks up
-- I mounted a remote control box on the tiller. Now I can steer, adjust
the throttle and switch from forward to reverse without bending,
stretching and looking in seven different directions.

Photo attached.

The motor is a 6HP Tohatsu "SailPro" and the remote control box is
branded as a Nissan but it's the same as the Tohatsu.

I used 5-foot control cables to ensure that any bends would be gradual;
but I probably could have gotten away with 4-foot. Two 1/4" bolts needed
for mounting.

Ordered the Box and converter kit from internetoutboards.com

-- Item ID:727, SRC3AS838800M - SRC KIT

-- Item ID:687, RC3B7Q843601M - Remote Control Box, Blue, Sidemount

Ordered the control cables from go2marine.com

-- 115530 TFXtreme Control Cables CCX633, 5' Length

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Great idea.

I just hope the main sheet doesn't slack up, loop the handle and snatch it off.

A ring over the whole thing??
