I had problems with routing the outboard control cables as well but can't blame Humber as I did it myself
The first set got really stiff after 6 months and even at the start were none too free moving. I replaced and re routed them fortnight ago with supreme grade ones and now they are operable with one pinky
The main problem is lack of space to get good route in a small console with the fuel tank in the way but using the better cables and with a bit of care this can be worked around.
The other problem is the play in a 6 month old steering cable, so much so that I am saving my pennies for hydraulic before it gets that bad that I can't steer straight
I could fit 6 divers on board but took the decision never to take more than 4 simply to stop the kit getting broke as fat Ba*****d divers stomped all over it, a problem on a lot of club boats where everybody gets crammed on.
The bow is a bit low on the assault and they do ship some water, especially in a seaway that is on the quarter.
