    Default Calgo steering adjustment?

    Who feels like educating me on how to adjust the cables on a Calgo? Found a thread mentioning the importance of adjustment but not how to do it.
    My boat has a bit if a wander when at speed, and I think it is because the cables aren't tensioned properly. It isn't excessive, but I can imagine that the nozzle thrust can move the nozzle angle back and forth causing my wander.
    I was going to ask at the Power Tour on Sunday but the few owners with calgo were out on a run in another boat.
    Bostick mentioned using a fish scale and a come-a-long, but wasn't sure about the tension.
    School me please.

    OK, found the number for Norm Grimes shop. I got some advice on a few things to check out. My wander may very well just be "bow steer" since the boat currently rides so wet. It breaks water at the helm when at max speed.
    However, my cables are still a little loose. I'll adjust them and see what it does.
