Is it possible to convert my 15 foot aluminum vhull with a tiller handle motor on it to a remote steer? I have some skills with wood and im decent at mechanics but metal work isnt my thing. Any ideas or tricks let me know.

Adding remote controls will cost money for parts to make the conversion.
A simple console can be built from wood and fiberglassed or painted.
Just more things to do in your project.

Yes but it probably going to cost you around $500 +/-. You need, in no particular order:

Steering wheel & helm
Steering Cable
Control box (throttle/shifting)
Throttle Cable & Shift Cable
Keyswitch & wiring harness
Connecting Kit & Steering Arm

I'm by no means a Merc pro. I would join a Merc or iboats forum and ask the outboard gurus what part numbers to order. They should be somewhere along these lines.....
