Help w Zodiac Remote Control on 15 Merc Tiller
Thank you all in advance for your kind replies..
I inherited a 12' new zodiac with a once used 1997 Mercury 15hp from my father before he passed.
The zodiac has a high pressure deck and no console or amenities. The merc is a tiller with fwd neutral reverse and a kill switch.
I took the boat out and my 250lbs plus the motor and fuel on the transom, all the weight is in the rear, and the bow sticks up out of the water. When I goose it I feel like I'm going to flip it before the bow slaps down and planes out.
My goal is to
1) create a 3/4" ply deck and bolt down a center console- taking measures to ensure the obvious of rubbing edges and painting in marine grade paint.
2) relocate fuel tank to the bow
3) install bench seating towards the bow for 2 ppl side by side behind center console.
How the heck do I convert my 1997 Merc 15 tiller to stick steering or steering helm??
How do I convert the Merc to remote control throttle??
Can someone please take a look at my engine and help me find the parts? I have zero idea what it is I'm looking for or need to accomplish this... granted the cables will obviously need to be measured once the console is in...
Thank you all!
