Newbee - advice Needed


I have a 30hp Mariner manual start, tiller operated outboard on my 4.3m SIB.

I have located a consolel that will fit in the boat so in need to convert my outboard to remote operation. Is this as simple as buying the controls, cables and linkages?

Any contacts for suppliers of the parts that i will need is much appreciated.

Many thanks,

I understand Mariners like your fairly easy to convert. You'll need to buy a kit which has all the bits that will allow you to attach and fix the throttle and gear cables. You'll also need to get a bracket to attach the steering bar to, along with the steering bar (drag link) it'self, steering cable, helm, wheel, throttle box etc. Could be quite an expensive operation.
