    My aluminum will be ready in April and I am wanting to look into a flat steering wheel for the stern. I fish alone a lot and it would help me a great deal...

    Anyone know where I should be looking?

    This is what we are running. We picked it up from the harbour chandler for a little over $100. We originally wanted aluminum or stainless but bought this to match the look of our main wheel. We are glad we did as it is very comfortable and keeping it clean hasn't been a problem. Having the rear steer station on the boat and plumbed to our hydraulic steering is the cat's ass. We'll never go back.

    Thank you tubber. Not sure why I have so many problems with pictures on this site. It's a constant battle with resolution and orientation. Obviously something I'm doing wrong.

    I'm thinking of going this route. EZ steer hasn't really worked well for me because of awkward transom design forcing kicker to have little separation from main. I don't have hydraulic steering though. I guess I could just get a short cable setup, right? Kicker is a non-tiller 2000 Merc 9.9 4 stroke with electric start and manual tilt.

    I have a Python system on my 9'9 4 stroke kicker. Works great with either wired or wireless control.

    image.jpg Yeah call it what it is, cheap, frugal? Whatever! Fits my current budget and sertainly fits my style!
    Used what I had, Came out to 10"
    Could always remove 4 spokes and put a Brodie knob on the remaining one

    Hello Wolf
    I am looking for a 1.7 c in helm pump to put in a rear steering station if that is what you have and if it is still available.
    Thanks Dave
