Discussion in 'Texas Hunting & Fishing' started by karlac, Jul 18, 2017.
This was 2pm on a Thursday.
There was discussion about tiller steering motors. Most boats with either of those steering types are generally relatively small motors and boats.
Around here that'd be someone getting a jump on a three day weekend ... usually with a skidoodle.
Got back up here to AR and replaced the entire cable, housing, steering stick and its box.
True to the old maxim: B(reak) O(ut) A(nother) T(housand), it was costly, but what a difference. It is now back to factory spec and steering like that bayou boat in the video above.
Just in time as fishing is fix'n to get good, despite that global warming cold weather.
Fwiw, I'm looking for yet another long/slim/"old school" bass-boat of the 1965-75 era, with stick-steering, to remodel into a "crappie fishing special" for the sloughs/creeks/"narrow" waters of TX. = Something like a 1960s SKEETER, RANGER, TIDECRAFT or similar would be perfection, given my love of Texas-built boats.
(I have several 35 & 40 HP Johnnyrude outboards to power it.)
