thoughts on steering ? ?

i am in the middle of changing my steering cable and helm.
when i went down to the boat yard yesterday he said the engine is right on the limit to whether i should get the lighter steering setup or the heavier one. (50hp)

the lighter steering setup being 85 and the next one up being 130 !!!

any ideas ????

does anyone know a cheaper place ?

I reckon the ' lighter' one will be fine - Ive got a 50 Yam and its very easy on the helm. Not much force at all on it. Just my opinion tho !
