Rough cost to convert tiller to wheel

I am looking at a tartan 34c with a tiller. My better half wants to convert this to a wheel. What kind of cost might I be looking at?

Thanks muchly in advance!

Thousands, unless you DIY and get the parts from another boat. Edsons's off the shelf conversion "kit" was over $2500 last I checked.

Re: Rough cost to convert tiller to wheel

Just easier to find a boat that already has a wheel

Re: Rough cost to convert tiller to wheel

Edson has been around for a long time and nothing seems to be obsolete. I have seen used pedestals for sale plenty of times. Just keep your eyes open and you can probably find one for a good price. Even the older ones clean up nicely and with a good coat of paint, look like new.
