I guess I was thinking about the race boats, there the cables come off the bottom.
Dana calls it slippage, the story of my life, prop slip, clutch slip, tire slip, now brain slip ;-)

John ok thank you that should mean or at least eye balling from under dash will be in my favour.
I did consider this… taking steering cables to one side a while back I asked. To keep starboard side clear for kids fingers, but come to the conclusion I can’t bubble wrap her. But maybe it may work out that way by my fault

I'm sorry but I disagree with Ray. The cables on each part of the drum come off the top with the cable going to the starboard side of the boat coming off the rear portion of the spool. The cable going to the port side of the boat coming off the front part of the spool. You can also rig the steering so that both cables go to just one side of the boat.

Ray ok , that’s obviously something I don’t know. I’m pretty worked up about throttle and steering cables. Thank you for that.
so it doesn’t matter what side of the boat I go too from top or bottom of drum

The cables will come off the bottom, if they come off the top it will steer backwards.

On steering question I suppose I could drill and install bushing for cable to glide through dash..
