    There are controls for the fwd/reverse bucket, steering and to move the intake grid up and down if it gets clogged with weeds or debris. Steering is normally hydraulic, the other two are bowden cables.
    Behind the input shaft is a gearbox, matched for a particular boat weight and engine power.
