Steering mod

  • Boat Type: Boat Type

I got my M19 with a steering conversion on the rudders, but a very constrained tiller on the motor. I also enjoy fishing quiet a bit, so rearanged the cockpit a bit for extra room.
Our M19 is for the 2 of us so I moved the fuel tank to below into a stainless tank.
Also Installed a pedestal Steering coloum useing a daul cable ultra flex steering system.
The cock pit now has 2 modes, sailing with the rear seats down or fishing with the seats folded up for more rear leg room. pics are while in progress so heaps of tools still lying around.
The las pic is how I got my m19, the steering was akward being backward and took up lots of space, I removed all this and installed a timber removable deck at the rear. My M19 is now a dream to steer.
