    Hello, I am student in college who is studying Naval Architecture. Over the summer I would like to build my first boat on my own. I was thinking about trying the 8' Tiny Titan plans from Glen-L boats. My only question is that I have a 15 horse power outboard that I would like to use. The problem is that it is manually turned like a tiller. Is there any sort of conversion kit where it can be changed to utilize a steering wheel and gear shifter?

    This is my first thread and I am sorry if it is confusing.

    Welcome aboard.
    The best is to contact the outboard brand dealership, or go on the internet by searching within the namebrand.
    You will have also to retrofit the controls system.

    Easier way is to trade it to one with the remotes..
