Even with rear steer the cables, controls and harness had to go somewhere.
Jabe I think Rob owes you some holes.
Rob it is not your boat anymore, update your list of boats.

Nice hide job.


Because one is SUPPOSED to steer from the rear.

Those are nice. I have a perfect boat for a set of those. I bet a few of us might have use for a pair for windshields. I’ don’t think it would be too hard to have those done local Neil. I can think of a few guys.
