Regarding my Revenge V-22:Belly tank project.
My new NFB 4.2 Dual Cable Steering system recommends not bending the steering cables less than an 8in radius. My old cables were routed through the troughs and out the starboard teak hatch then over to the engine. Also, the instructions tell you not to bundle the steering cables with the electrical wires.
Should I run the steering cables from the helm to the starboard gunwel then to the rear of the boat then over to the engine or should I run the electrical to for the distribution panel,and engine harness under the gunwel....or to heck with the worked fine for 22 years with everything in the troughs.
Input apprecitated.

I don't think most boat builders have ever read those instructions. I can't think of a boat brand that I have sold over the years that didn't bundle everything together.
Every boat I have ever owned, outboard and inboard, the wiring harness was bundled with the steering cable.
In my Montauk everything runs through the tunnel and is bundled together after it comes out. In boats I have owned where the steering ran back under the gunwale the electrical harness and control cables have allways been tie wraped to the steering cable.
As you say if it worked before why change.

Thanks Dick,
That was my opinion too. However, when you start taking a project apart and finding little things done incorrectly, I started questioning everything. So I made the mistake of reading the instructions. Got me confused I guess. Thanks, one vote to put it back in the troughs.
