got final finish today on the rear floors and compartments, lids done as well.....tried to make them look as old as the boat........wiring strung too all their local, not hooked up yet........also heated and fitted two chase's for the fuel lines to run to the aft from mid deck....2" vacuum pipe, sqarsh to 1 1/2" under the rear seat.........didn't think it be wise to have the fuel lines sitting right on the floor......rubbing.......:yikes:

The cables i have are 12'..........going by the chart........i measure 9' on the broken line........chart suggests.......8'-9' = 11' cables, 9'-10' = 12' cables..........these cables work fine, the outer rubber casing has a few cracks, so in time i will replace them with the shorter cables, or i may just like how i rerouted the excess and stay with the 12'.......cheers

How long of control cables do you have? It looks like you are trying to use up some slack with a winding route, or is that normal routing. Can they be shortened if found too long?
