This is a replacement system. My 24' Starcraft is 1980s vintage. There is no console nor any steering system. I have a long shaft Suzuki 15HP, which I tiller steer. I'd like to add something more convenient than the tiller. Would this replacement system be a reasonable starting point for a new installation? Of course, throttle and gear shift would be required, too.
Yes absolutely. This replacement pontoon steering system would be the best option in your situation.
We have a 12 ft pontoon, using a 15 horse tiller steer. Would this work on my Pontoon?
It will work but it will be more involved then just purchasing the steering sysyem. You will need to make some other modifications as well. For example your motor will need to be an electrical start or need to be converted to one. Plus you will need to locate the correct throttle controls and cables.
