    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

    -Aluminum console
    -Steering cable
    -Steering helm
    -Steering wheel
    -Throttle box

    Here's my problem... the steering stuff I have taken care of. Its the throttle and shifting side of things I am stuck at. I dont want any remote start or anything else so I am not worried about that. Please help i need to get back on the water:(

    Is the outboard setup for remote control? Or is it a tiller model?

    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.....
