Pedestal mount engine controls

Postby rvivian » Mon Nov 09, 2015 3:00 pm

I bought the necessary parts from Edson to relocate the engine controls on my F-30 from the port cockpit wall to the steering pedestal.

But I have not yet been able to figure out how to route the control cables from the engine, over the quarterberth and up the pedestal without impinging on the berth.

Anyone done this or have pictures of how the cables have been routed in their F-30?

Thanks

Not sure how similar/ different they are, but on my Hoyt F32, they exit the pedestal to the rear into the lazaretto, then essentially loop back around and travel under the aft berth along with the water/exhaust/heater lines and hoses to the engine.

Thanks for the reply, but how tight a turning radius can those cables take coming down out of the pedestal and turning aft? The F-30 just has 2-1/2" depth in the box above the bed and under the cockpit.

That sounds like the F32 setup as the pedestal sits above the rear berth. I'd guess about the same clearance, and they make the turn fine coming out of the bottom of the pedestal
