thats enough drilling for 1 nite!...

only because its getting dark!

well ive done wot i wanted to do, I want put a hole in the console (where the blue dot is), to run cables inside rather than outside

I'm just scared about the kinking of the gear cables will it have much effect? it would only be a little? -

or shall I just grow a bigger pair of balls and get in there drill happy? - ur thoughts all appreciated!

I would make an oblong hole using a hole cutter to create two resonably sized holes overlapping each other, then a saw to cut the sides stright. Im my experiance bending cables through a tiny hole has BIG effect, as well as wearing the cables very quicky.

I would then put a "witches hat" over the top to seal it and make it look nice.

I guess you mean it's quite an old photo? Your RIB looked in much better condition than that on Sunday!

Slightly off topic.

Does anyone know of a flush side mounted throttle unit where the cables are attached inside the console?
It would need a trim switch and neutral throttle or neutral button.

Mark, have a look at the Vetus catalogue, can't remember if they have the trim as well but the do very nice side mount controls. Alternativley mercury do a trim button widget.
