    I just bought my 25Hp merc to put on the crack-noe and am not sure what I need to buy in order to steer the thing (no tiller) and the guy said it was called teleflex system. Is that like the stick steering that I have seen on some boats or is it possible to get it with a helm. Any help would be appreciated greatly.

    Teleflex is the name of the throttle cables. Steering cables you can get both ways stick or helm. Which are you wanting?

    I am not sure yet I am still in the building process and have not thought that far ahead in detail. I have never used or seen in person stick steering so I would like to get some feed back as to what the advantages and disadvantages there are to it compared to a helm....with the obvious one being space and the helm gives you a little bit more to ho9ld on to when hulling azz. Are there any others?

    Teleflex makes just about everything for boat controls. when most people say teleflex in regards to steering a small boat they are talking about a teleflex rotary helm. It's basically a mechanically driven rack and pinion system except the "rack" is flexible and is contained in a round housing to save space.

    You pretty much hit the nail on the head with the advantage/disadvantage of both the stick and the helm. What kind of boat are you talking about? Unless I had a side console LT I would prefer the stick over the helm so you wouldn't have a center console to deal with.

    This is all in preparation for the crack-noe (the crack head canoe conversion into a canoe).
    at this point I thin I will go with the stick steering unless the price is about the same. What does each system go for around about?

    Thanks for the help!!!!

    I use stick steering on my noe, and it is great. I have rigged in the center. I am guesing the stick will be cheaper, It is basically a stick connected to a steering cable, so would have to be cheaper than console.

    If you have any air boats in your area look at it , it mostlikely has a stick steering system
