I have a 16' Ultimate Multi purpose Propel.

 

I don't like the propel unit at all so replaced it with trolling motor and mount.  This works great, but I don't like the hand control for the rudder.  Originally you could not use foot peddles for the rudder because you need feet on the Propel Unit.

 

With the motor mount I want to use foot control for the rudders.

 

So, I guess what I need is asset of cables,  cable guide, and sliding foot peddles.

 

Any Idea of what these will run, and is there anything else that I will need?

 

Thanks.

I'd like to buy your propel drive if you are looking to unload it. Best of luck with the conversion.

Come to think of it, you'd probably be better off selling the ultimate with propel drive and buying a non-peddle ultimate with rudder. 

 

That being said, I'd be pretty stoked to buy a used propel drive for $200. Kinda low considering a new one is like $899.99 or something, but being used and not knowing the condition/age......

Jack....get up with get:Outdoors, the site owner, and they should be able to help you set the boat up with sliding foot pedals. You may have to have the cable crisscross back in the back but maybe not.  (800) 450-6819
