Thanks for the quick reply, Barry. The steering is a Tele-Flex Safe-T with an 11' cable. I made 1 twist under the dash and ran it out and back. When it's all finished it will be clamped down and pretty. I experimented with routing it inside, but that would have left a visible twist next to the motor. I didn't make the hood flush, because I wanted to install a HOT FOOT throttle under the dash. I was advised by an exgineer friend of mine... that if I happened to submarine the boat, I'd break my ankles. So, it was too late to lower the hood. Works out OK, I like the way it looks. I have a great paint scheme in mind, but I will keep that under wraps until completion. There WILL be copycats.... -pat-
