    Default thanx

    thanx for all the help! but there is more, if you can?? my boat is a 75 sleekcraft sportster 18'. i need to run the diverter cable?? i have heard that i want as much of a strait shot as possible. i really want to run it behind my side panels, then out with as little cable showing as possible??? i have been told to run it straight back, under the back seat, then down the stringer, then straight out the transom, with as little bending as possible??
    i would like to see some pics of your cable routing, and shifter placement.
    any and all pics will be appreciated, i need to see yours so i can make a good decision on mine.
    any and all advise welcome,thanx

    going out now to take a couple of pics

    The advice you were given about cable placement was right on.Most peeps mount diverter control right between front seats,closer to drivers seat.Cables crossing the floor take away from the clean look but it's practical. If you realy can't take the cable exposed,you might be able to run the cable under the false floor to the bilge,then out.

    My boat used to have a YJ and several years ago I converted it to a Dominator similiar to what you are doing. Just from my experience make sure you epoxy the inside of the suction housing where it meets the bowl. Without the epoxy, it creates cavitation and burns up impellers.

    Good Luck
