Well got the boat out of storage to put new platform on it. Glad i did. Went to turn the steering wheel and it was real stif....kinda normal seems stiff at the beginning of every year then loosens up. I knew it was only a matter of time but now the steering wheel spins freely. Went i go under the boat to turn the rudder i can not budge it is this normal? ALso what kind of steering cable will i need for a 78 skier? I dont beleive they make it anymore :cool:

You might just want to call up the usual suspects, SkiDIM, MYMC, Jim BAWS etc.

nah that's what you want if you are putting an outboard on a small boat.

You want the cable, the right length for your boat. Which i do not know.

you'll get some information soon I bet.

Just call skidim and give them all of the particulars and they will be able to tell you exactly what you need.
