    actual Install will depend on a multitude of issues , like assembly positioning , angle, hull/transom thickness etc

    Thanks Tom.
    So both plates go on the out side and the bolts thru bolt the transom.
    I am supposin, that I have to drill a big enough hole, to accept the nylon ball?
    Do I need sealant on the nylon ball to tube, threads?
    What is the advantage to this style steer tube vs a regular steer tube?

    So, Tom, this type of steer tube doesn't require a set of jamb nuts, one on outer and inner, to keep adjustment or tube from rotating?
    My tube turns pretty easily.

    Yes, the one I purchased. It turns very easily. I can screw it in and out with my fingers, which changes the adjustment of the nozzle, left to right.
    Worried about the friction of the water turning it while under way.

    Theres no rotary action on a steering cable to change things cable so unless the loosness causes a leak concern I wouldnt worry about it
