For boats using wheel steering (either cable or hydraulic) a belt can be attached to the wheel, and electric motor attached to the belt.

A windshield wiper motor makes a good drive motor using a ratio from 1:8 or 1:4 depending on the boat and how much force the wheel takes to turn.

A toothed belt is recommended to avoid slipping.
