Installing a B/W velvet drive in my 63 Biesemeyer. Already have a foot throttle so now I need a way to shift it in and out of gear. I'm sure someone here has done it. What you use?
Yep, having that shifter up on the cowl side is so convenient. I ran that exact shifter on my Sanger flat, then loop the cable back and under the motor to a small clip bracket on the Velvet Drive. Here's a pic. Jockoa good ol' handle from eddie marine with lockout and ignition control should do the trick. Rex marine also has a good selection of shifters and accesories.
