Hi Mike,
I'm just a little confused (what else is new?).
Can you explain exactly what you mean by "Hand control" of the outboard
When I was into outboards -- I thought "tiller control" meant "hands-on
control," with steering and twist-grip throttle on a flip-up "tiller,"
and shifting done on lever on the outboard.
I'm just guessing -- but your Evinrude boat has older, original OMC
REMOTE CONTROLS (throttle and shifter) and cables, SIDE-MOUNTED at the
forward helm?
Any Mercury-savvy outboard shop should be able to re-rig your outfit
with MERC remote controls -- if that's what your are asking? I don't
think it's practical or affordable to try and CONVERT or ADAPT the OMC
REMOTE CONTROLS to work with the MERC.

Subject: [OMC-Boats] Tiller to control conversion

I am looking for any suppliers that carry conversion parts to convert a
25hp Mercury outboard "tiller" to a "hand control" motor. I currently
have a 1965 Sport 14 with the side mounted controls.
Thank you,
