    Default reverse lever options?

    I have a 19' cheyenne tunnel and space is at a premium. Anyone have a suggestion on a better way to run the bucket so my leg is not jammed into the lever? Pics would be nice.

    no pics, but have installed them on the stringer just in front of the bucket seat. have seen them installed upside down in the gunnel on bracket, several ways to do it , it just needs to push and pull the cable, lever wont know where its mounted.

    Personally never liked the Stringer mts , I like Johnnys idea of upside down on the gunnel ?, weve been starting to sell alot more 3 position "locking handles" too Tom

    I noticed in another thread ToddnJuzz had a cool foot operated reverse, Maybe he will chime in with some more pics of it. Maybe the bracket in the gunnel might work.

    Default lever

    remove it alltogether. I sued a hydraulic system just like the trim setup. Mounted the switch on the steering wheel.

    Cyclone had a pretty cool set up with everything mounted between the seats.

    Friend of mine has a Taylor with the forward/reverse control mounted on the right side of the driver seat base.... I know it probably sounds awkward, but it seems to work just fine, no worse than working a manual diverter. I don't have any pics showing it, I'll mention this thread to him, he may have some he can post.

    Never thought about putting it on the right side I could make a bracket and mount it off of the seat bottom. The pedal operated one would be pretty cool though.

    This setup I think is the hot ticket. http://img409.imageshack.us/img409/2222/img2297yd4.jpg

    stringer mount probably wont work due to the boat having 2x stringers so they are kind of short. Otherwise that is what i would do.
