Andy, can you not just leave it connected and pull the whole of the cable out of the boat?

I couldn't have pulled the Ram end though all the little twisty corners JW, but I've got it licked now.....It's so easy it silly really!

This morning pulled the helm out of the console far enough to get a good look and there was a hole that is shown in pic one that I placed a short M4 bolt in, I then used an adjustable grip to depress this bolt, so depressing the internal ovoid spring, that intern released the outer cable.


Thanks everyone and apart from the nylon bush which is shot, looks to be in good condition.

Andy

Andy,
Our XS 550 is Brilliant Handles like an F1 and rides like a RR. Ours can be seen inaction on our web site or XS Web site under the 550 link.

It has a 115 Opti on her. I am sure we can arrange a blast one weekend soon. She is very good value for money.

Just seen your Pics, Andy.....Great, I want one! Bet she flys with the 115 on the back. Good looking colour scheme, may be with Yellow wear patches for me .

Brian, you running yours with the 90 or the 135? Be interested about handling/performance if it's the 90 on the back end.
