No expert on steering  A but the systems you referred to are the same . Depends on choice .

I installed the Multiflex in place of the 55 year old pulley system and what a difference. It doesn't come with a steering wheel (thank goodness).
You should be able to use the same wheel .
The important thing is cable length (see instructions)  as it comes in fixed lengths .

Still don't know what you current system is so as Mercman says you may only need new cable .

Send pics we love photos  Wink Smiley

As to House Paint . Gee you take me back a few years  Grin

Condolences on the loss of your mother A . I will always remember the lovely 'Board ' response to the loss of my dad.

As to Coopers ,on tap at the club and mid tinnies at home . Productivity ! What's that ? Grin

Subject steering -post pics as you said.

As Guy says you can save money on fuel with the new 'Rudes' but as you are not pretentious he and I will fork out about $15000 each and buy the twins  Cheesy Roll Eyes

Careful skiing and watch your flies !

Hi Lads
Nice bit of medical analogy Guy .
The Dangar Marine man I find fascinating and I recommended him to members some time ago . He also drinks Coopers like me -no he drinks less .
The system he is replacing on the video is not the pull push worm I had on SX 2 .
Don't know what your system is A but could be the same old plastic coated cable as mine was .
If so I suggest a Multiflex unit which is now on my boat . Mercman has driven  it !
 Dearer than just cable replace but worthwhile .
Hydraulic preferred but no value .

She's hit the rock when it was covered with water as there is a patch port side stern .
Could be on the Thousand Islands stretch of water in the US although this is not one of the islands as they have to have at least two trees on each one .

If it is an Academy you are a very clever lad !
What I was really fishing for apart from I.D. was a boatanical name such as ;

Acadamia Groundus or
Daffodilia Flotsoma

I agree A
A 120 year old house (home) sounds wonderful  Smiley

But when you do do the boat cabin add an anti-mould .
Doubtless you could something from the surgery to suit  Grin

Jokes aside , if you are painting inside the cabin of a wooden boat , regardless of what type of paint , it is highly recommended to add an anti-mould .

Yummy!
A pink interior water based paint . That's even better .

You can't go past house paint A  Wink

Hi AA
Very droll ,brilliant !
Your humour asks more questions than spray paint .
As you say go no further but we can discuss per PM's , sheds ,tools  and ages as in men's shed and no2's age .

Tried most of Mercman's paints and they work well ,depending on price but the key to all painting is surface preparation.

 Hi Guy ,
The west/east flight path crosses the river at the boat ramp when making a direct approach .
All others on this approach turn right to go out over the ocean and come in from the south or left ,head north and then turn south to land .
These turns are also over Picnic Point so the SAAB could have been turning at the time of loss.
I love spotting aircraft from littlies to A380's although thankfully out of earshot .

Would be nice to have one of the old wooden blades of which there are quite a few about .

Hope you enjoyed Neville as much as we enjoyed Dubbo  Smiley

The missing propeller from the SAAB Turboprop was found today about 2000 metres from SX 2 and a few hundred metres from our launching ramp  Shocked Shocked Shocked
