I saw this arrangement on a RNLI SIB in Belmullet (Ballyglass) once (circa 8 years ago) (through a window) So I know it can be done but I do not know the mechanices of the system or the engine type

Use the steering links (that a remote steered system would use) and tie-rod them together?

Still have to deal with the throttles though. No idea how you'd synchronize them.

Why complicate things up, just buy one larger HP engine equivalent to 2 same HP engines and add a second smaller kicker, say a 15 HP. 2 same HP engines will outweight the weight of just one same HP engine.

2 engines will give double headaches than just one. Why do you want to count with 2 ?

Happy Boating

C class boats had twin out boards some had a connecter bar so that one would steer the other with a 2nd throttle cable set up going to the other engine using the throttle "remote "control lever on the side of the engine .
Some earlier ones as in the pic just steered using one engine & needed a second crew helm when needed .

I saw references in the past to a system people referred to as TWINS but I could not find anything further on the Internet. There are a couple of examples on YouTube, and one guy has a linking rod between the two engines so they turn in synch but the system looked as though he had made it as opposed to anything you can buy ready made.

Seem to remember a couple of years ago on here someone posting a photo of a twin tiller/ throttle set up , may have been Ep Barrus for a military contract they were doing.
Uncle Al may be able to throw more light on the subject .

You will need second motor with counter rotating prop. Usually those don't come with tiller anyway.
Convert tiller outboard to run with remote control, leave tiller for steering, add crossover steering rod to second outboard.
Mount dual remote control boxes on the stern close to tiller to shift and throttle.

Is there particular reason to have such contraption as opposed to console?
