It is a 1988 19 foot Almar welded Aluminum jet boat with a 175 hp Kodiak (Ford 302) and Hamilton clone pump.

I just added a new 20 hp tiller Tohatsu kicker for trolling, or emergency get back to the dock if trouble strikes. The kicker is mounted almost a foot behind the transom and the operator has to reach through a handrail to the controls. It is uncomfortable to run, to say the least.

I want to add wireless remote steering and throttle control.

I have been researching the "Powertran Python remote kicker steer".

But links appear to be old and my E-mail was not answered. Possibly out of business?

Any suggestions?

How much is the wireless? $$$?

could you rig up a lever steer like panfish boats have?

I would guess that this Tailfin is the same system, but under new ownership.

I will get in contact with them this week and see what they can do for me.
