Type in the words "binnacle control mount" on Yahoo's search engine and see what you get. Someone better call Nissan and tell them that is the wrong term on there web site.

Type in "Whale watching Lake Michigan" and you'll find information on Whale watching in our fresh water sea, but that doesn't mean it is correct.

There are so many sites and so many badly spelled words that you have to watch the parameters you search. Almost any three words return some results.

Ever hear o'this t'ing called a dictionary? They gots one at the library you can look at f'free! They's got the word, binnacle, in there. Mebbe you could check it out an' learn a thing r'two. Friggin' pointy-headed 'puter nerds put all KINDa stuff on the web and not all o'it is correct.

Hey Hoot,

You spelled Binnacle wrong on your previous post. Maybe YOU should check the dictionary.

They are plenty of words in there. Try find "class" and "respect" Why don't you guys stick to the original question regarding OMC/Merc. bin. cntrls rather waste time with this banter?

I asked a question hoping for some input, not childish games with posts about whether the term bin. control mount is accurate. It was a clear and accurate post. If you don't know the answer, in this case will OMC bin control mount work w/ a Merc motor, say nothing.

Try this:

BW Manual Sport Series 9-17 Owners manual
Boston Whaler, Inc
1149 Hingham Street
Rockland, MA 02370 USA

page 7-2

"SINGLE LEVER SIDE OR BINNACLE MOUNTED THROTTLE/SHIFT CONTROL: Larger engines may have a single lever control which provides both throttle and shift functions. These either are side mounted on the gunwale or are binnacle mounted on the boat's helm control panel. The lever is placed in the center or'neutral' position when starting the engine, and to disengage the propeller. Generally, engine speed is increased by moving the lever toward the direction of travel (ahead or astern) and decreased by moving the lever toward the neutral position."

Hey, if it was good enough for Dick Fisher, then it is good enough for me, too.

I think on a power boat the "binnacle" must be considered the whole console. That makes the top-mounting controls into binnacle mounts.

Parsing up the language into shades of meaning is rather fun. When the water is frozen you can't get much time in on the lake so we have to talk about something!

Jimh, the LEVER is mounted on the binnacle,
which is in turn mounted on the console.
Which makes it a "BINNACLE MOUNTED
should be "binnacle-mounted" (compound
adjectives should be hyphenated).

John O: I did that exact search on Google.
Nothing on Nissan comes up.

John-O, ya gots me red handed! May Ah pernt out that you did, after all, start this particular post that seems t'deal specifically with word-parsin’? Ah do understand how this persistent parsination can get damn aggravatin’, so we’ll all try t’be more parsimonious wid our parsin’ in future.

Glad t'see that you also got your answer in the previous related string from a helpful poster.

No harm no foul. Still need to buy the controls. Can't wait for Spring time which may not come until June up here.
