    WOW a new throttle cable!!!

    Hey folks,
    I just wanted to drop a quick note to discuss simple things. I've had Margarita for about 3 years now. The choke cable has always been a bit stiff and the throttle cable has been even worse. Well, after installing lazy jacks, a new roller furler and some other upgrades to the boat I decided that the choke and throttle needed attention. I removed the choke cable and cleaned it with emery cloth and regreased it. Wow, like new. Then I checked the throttle cable. I have the old Marmac two handle controls with removable handles. So, I replaced the cable. It had MORSE stamped on it, so I'm sure it was pretty old. Anyway, WOW! Like a new boat. My point in posting this is it is a very simple and inexpensive upgrade. Don't wait, just do it!!!

    I have the same system including Morse cables - 35 years old and still perfect.
