So I work away from home for 48 hours at a time. The thing is, in those 48 hours, Im rarely actually working and have plenty of time to cut, sand, epoxy and fiberglass, all while getting paid to work. I then have 4 days off.

Re: FS18 video

Re: Thoughts on a trailer

I have not. I did receive a link to a place that has plywood at their regular price that was the same as the sale price here. Maybe we can go in together and and make shipping less painful.

RMarsh, Thanks for the reply, Yes steering cables are what Im asking about. Where does it come out near the transom? I assume since it is a push pull cable, it has to come out on the starboard side. I think to keep the lines clean, I may look into hydraulic steering and have all the tubes, wires and...
