Cable Steering - Is NFB worth it?
I am in need of a little help here as a relative novice to boating. I recently bought a Zodiac 530 Pro (1988) with a Mariner 75 (3 cyl 2 st) from some old friends. I knew the boat was generally in good nick (well cared for, tubes replaced 6 years ago, always storred indoors etc) and I trust the previous owners, however i also knew it needed a little work. On the first outing it became apparent that the steering needs replaced as its stiff as hell. My question (finally) is........Is NFB steering worth it on boats this size and power? Is there any real advantages or disadvantages over standard cables or is it a preference thing?
I'm also looking to replace the whole lot, cable, helm, wheel etc and noticed Multiflex kits on ebay, from reputable suppliers are pretty qood value. Does anybody have any direct experience with them? Are they worth considering?
