Glad to hear he is doing just fine. He will be semi-retired for another 100 years with all that 100 year old teak of his...

I inspected my steering system, lubricated pulleys and replaced my steering cable with this: 3459T72 50ft.

My wheel has a spiral track that the cable winds upon on the bollard. Here is a video of a system just like I have. Instead of coming off of the bottom of the bollard I came off of the top as it get the cables running where I need them. This involves getting upsides down, using a mirror, duct tape, hemostats and working left handed. The motor even turned the correct direction when I turn the wheel, a 50/50 proposition.

I'm heading to the lake to test and also to try out a new prop.
