convert remote to tiller steering?

Ok, so I think I have found a SIB, payed a deposit and should collect on Saturday, I thought I had found a decent motor, 9 HP Evinrude only used in freshwater on the Thames upper reaches, then he mentions that it is remote and not Tiller, if I can get it cheap enough can you convert them?

I have not seen it yet so have no specific details although I suspect it will be approx 10-15 years old and is a two stroke. Is it worth even considering?

Thanks in advance

Hi

To your question yes,price probably around 100 you would need the serial number to find out what year it is.Is it worth it,that's up to you.It's the right time of year to bag a bargain

Why not use the steering setup?

If I didn't need every bit of space in the boat for dive gear, I would prefer a remote steering setup as it is more comfortable to drive long distances.

How do you install a remote on an alu-deck? Especially fixating the remote steeringwheel in the boat?

There are a lot of options.

Adjustable seating platform with a Central Console for Inflatable Boats.

Didn't know you could do that! Very interesting but I only have a 3.2 mtr long SIB so a bit too much hassle I am afraid, but thank you for the idea.
