Jockey seats/consoles on sibs.

Hi guys....say I am looking into turning my 12.6 sib with aluminum floor, into a remote steer instead of tiller steer. Have any of you seen or used a "jockey seat " instead of the traditional set -up? Another item I am considering. Is the St. Croix. Eurohelm system. Doesn't take up a lot of room, and I hope the aluminum floor supports it. It only wieghs 81 lbs, what do you guys think? Have any advice? I'm. Going to do this with a 15 Hp suzuki df15. Do I need to buy a kit to convert my tiller steer into a remote steer? Thanks for your help. Joe. Ps...this is on a 2011 4 stroke motor.

Honestly with a 15hp motor I would try to keep the boat as light as possible. It will also cost a lot of money to convert it.

Does this boat get trailered?

Would there be any floor space left to set your feet on?

The St. Croix system is very expensive and mostly for Rib installations, there are other simple less pricy alternatives for wooden or alum panel sibs...

Happy Sibbing

It is entirely possible to fit a small console to a SIB, we have supplied a great many in the past. Everything can be rigged to be removable too.
