Has anyone ever changed the steering box from port side to the starboard side? Has anyone wanted to? The steering would feel more natural to me on the right. Also, as a baitcast fisherman, I cast with my right hand and then switch to my left to reel. This means I have to change hands again to adjust the steering. Now, my eggbeater rods have the handle on the left but I don't usually use them. I guess i could pick up a LH baitcaster. I can use one since ambidextrous. I prefer RH tho and I have a good $ invested in RH baitcasters. I was just wondering if any other bass fishermen thought about this. I tried searching for this topic. I didn't find anything.

I recall when someone did it, then posted the pics on Facebook more than a year ago.
As I recall, the Native Propels are identical on each side all the way back to the rudder wheel so it involved moving the rudder lever and then re-routing the cabling and making a few adjustments. I think I recall seeing pics of it and that it looked very nice. I can't recall what they did with the port side after the rudder lever was moved.

Thanks for the input guys. I haven't decided what I'm going do yet.
