I am considering replacing my 1996 28 Evinrude with a 2005 60 Mercury ELPTO. The boat is a 16 Pro-Alaskan, aluminum.
My current steering system consists of a single cable with a stainless rod that passes through a housing in the front of the motor bracket which then connects with a swing rod that attaches to the front of the motor.
Can I expect to be able to use the same system on the Mercury? If not what are the things I should watch out for?
