Aerotec 380 crossbar steering cable length?

Hi
Anyone know what is the shortest steering cable length that is suitable for an aerotec 380 set up with crossbar steering. Thanks.

Thanks Fenlander. Big Al C recommends 10ft but it looks very long? Ideally i would prefer the shortest i can get away with for neatness. The one i saw recently on Mull was really neat but foolishly i didn't ask the cable lengths. Doh...

I started mentioned thread, I can confirm it fits. My cable is 11ft and that is a tad long. I wouldn't go shorter than 10ft.

Thanks for confirming. I've now got the Tohatsu control box and drag link and will hopefully have a steering system next week so am almost good to go.
