Thanks for the info Peter. I didn't realize the end piece might be so long. I wonder if the end of the cable that runs through the helm can be taken off and then run through the conduit backwards?

Yes it is, at least on my Teleflex Safe-T QC it was. Remove the safety pin and push it into the indent near where the cable enters the steering mechanisim. Cable should pull out. This end is much easier to thread thru conduit. Under the deck I'm using PVC electrical conduit as it has quite a large radius 90 degree elbow. Some builders have used 3" but 2" is working for me.

I plan on using the Teleflex rotary NFB system. It will go out the bottom of the console and into one of the several 3" pipes that run under the deck, and come back up into an enclosure at the corner of the transom.

I have the Teleflex rotary NFB on my widebody and am quite happy with it. I don't know if the end piece/motor attachment varies based on what you order, but for my motor there is straight metal shaft about 12" long that would need a pretty sizeable sweep elbow if it were run through conduit (it does not on my boat). I believe Chuck used 3" PVC and used two 45s and then was barely able to get his steering cable through... Just saying it's worth verifying at the conduit installation stage...

I sent in my deposit to do the 2015 Maine Boatbuilders Show in Portland.  The show runs from March 20-22. All are welcome to come up for the day or the weekend, and we'll have the usual get-together at our house on Saturday after the show.

I'm going to send an invitation to Betsy, and I'll make up some sort of memoriam for Renn to display in the boat.  I was thinking about enlarging the pic of him driving Paul's boat, and superimposing the best obit over it.  Something about 2' by 3' I can set up on an easel in the cockpit.

The same goes for anyone visiting Maine.  Stop in for a visit, and if the weather is decent and you have the time, we can arrange a tour of Casco Bay via Tolman Skiff.

And in the summer of 2015 or 2016 I hope to visit Ireland.  And a trip to the north to visit a local would be a very great addition.  Do you ever consider entertaining those that are half Irish and half German?   Even for a day or two?

And I extend the same to you if you plan to be in the Chicago area during the warmer months.

Do you guys have to register all boats regardless of use , i.e. commercial and pleasure , no such in the UK , only registered boats can legally sell fish but there is no requirement to register a pleasure angling  boat . Here was me thinking the USA was the land of the free , maybe not , LOL  Roll Eyes

Seems more and more we are the land of the fee, not the land of the free.

Any power boat needs to be registered, and I believe any craft over 10' weather powered or not needs to be registered.

No, I haven't registered my inflatable that I sometimes put the kicker or, nor my canoe.
