I just bought a Honda 2 hp outboard for my 16’ Old Town fiberglass canoe. The tiller on this outboard can be rotated 180 degrees, so it can be controlled from behind, so to speak. Given this, I’m wondering if it would make sense to mount the outboard slightly forward of the stern seat and steer from behind?
It would make for slightly easier steering (once I wrap my brain around the reversal) and would also move some weight forward a bit.
Has anyone ever done this?
