Tried and tested definitely, it's only a 30hp not 300hp, its politically incorrect to own a boat in my family, I have one cross bencher prepared to vote for me and the other daughter suffers from being a female . So any financial matters have to be swindled through, turning up with forward controls would mean jail time, possibly death.
The servo / motor will need to be fitted to the tiller handle and removable whilst rolling around and plan b ( tiller extension) refitted to tiller. A steering failure would mean the same.
A bit of quality time in the shed messing around with boats and a few dollars on eBay, a few home brews, sorry back to go work.
