Steering on 200 Opti?

Just swapped the Merc v6 150 on my boat to a Merc 200 Opti - I was running Teleflex cable steering with the 150 - is this Ok with the 200 or MUST I swap to hydraulic?

I'm not 'going mad' with the boat, just recreational use so not sure if the are justified?

If you like cable, upgrade to the Teleflex twin system. If set up correctly, it's superb, and unlike hydraulic, it'll never fail on you!

Hmmm...

I know a lot more people with cable steering who have had problems (stuck cable/jammed helms/heavy steering/broken cables) than with hydraulic (leaky helm or ram.)
