I'm in the process of getting my fan set up and I was wondering what type of steering cables everyone uses.. It's not going to be set up like a typical fan, it will have rudders rather than the whole fan turning..
You will want a 5/16'' cable. A 3/8'' cable would be more money and would just be over kill. Any airboat company can get you the cable you need made to the length you need.
i say 5/16 ...a frikin 3/8 is OVERKILLyou will need a 3/8" teleflex bulkhead style steering cable with 6" of travel. They run about 170 bucs
