Jack,

I think it depends on the type of steering set up you have. Here's a link that might help.

George on the Avalon I'm still using cable and pulley system not the more modern push pull cable systems.
Thought you were traveling.

Jack,

Checking in from the road. Currently in Schuyler Nebraska. Lots of corn here (and not much else...). Taking a tour of the local meat packing plant on Friday. Told they "process" 5,600 cows a day! That's a lot of steak!! This is one of the plants designed by Temple Grandin. Apparently, she still comes once a year as a special guest.

Found a good discussion on the cable/pulley system on iBoats: forums.iboats.com/forum/boat-repair-and-...able-pulley-steering Length would vary depending on if your cables ran down both sides of the boat or just to one side. Wondered if a coated metal clothesline would work(?) It's mentioned in this article. Can be bought cheap at most hardware stores, so just cut to length.

The SOS G-3 came with a cable/pulley system. Decided to change to a normal rack and pinion system when choosing the larger motor. I might still have the old pulley hardware laying around at the house, if you need it.
