Stick steer on 200 hp outboard

Postby rapidpulse » Tue Jun 19, 2018 3:12 pm

I did one on a wooldridge with a 175 and one on a 135. they worked but has been a few years back and want to see if any has come up with some better ideas. ready to do another one and wanted to see if anyone has used a hydraulic or actuator system?

I think that would be the perfect application for a hydraulic system. I imagine you know about Clearwater Hydraulics system: Image

I think an electric actuator system would either be too slow or too weak. Hope you show us what you come up with Scott.
I'm brand new to jet boats so don't listen to anything I say.

i haven't seen that. The problem with a stick on a outboard is that the swing of the motor is around 12 inches if you use the cable. I will have to check them out.. thanks

I’ve seen several on the Salmon with solid rod and bell crank.
Also a friend of mine did a new style on his 309 with a big hydraulic ram to a smaller ram. If you would like his info PM me.
