Just picked up this boggy creek skiff. I’ve seen some skiffs with a metal bracket on the site for the steering wheel and control s to attach . Is there a kit I can buy?

Assuming you mean converting it to a side console, I think that's a change you would regret in the long run. Lots of us here run tiller skiffs, and in the case of your Boggy (sweet boat btw), I would not dream of converting that tiller to a side console. It would compromise your cockpit space, likely be a bit costly, and frankly look like an afterthought. Adding a throttle binnacle, steering system, key switch, and all associated rigging would clutter up the efficient, simple design you have there.

Just my two cents....

You might want to look into stick steer 🤔 but you dont want no metal salt water would have your boat covered in rust in no time ! A Fiberglass side console is what you want IMHO

I to have been wanting a wheel,and considered the side console but on small skiffs you will stay wet ,the tiller rules for 16 under in my book because of the quick steering and being closer to center you stay dryer 👍😎 plus its all about simplicity 😉
