Re: Outboard advice needed - dealer charged install price
I think if you check some outboard online sites, you'll see that the remote throttle / shifter / ignition plus associated wiring and cables are a separate equipment purchase... before any installation.
Consider the installer will be drilling the wall of your cockpit footwell to a) install & seal the controls, b) route and secure the cables & wiring, c) testing everything, and finally, standing behind the installation. In my experience, your quote is fair.
Last year I needed to have the boatyard repair my remote-control outboard setup... I needed a few parts where the cables connect to the engine, and parts and labor for that was $200.
