    Got it. I'm thinking inside because I've always done it that way. Perfect! I've got the same bosses. Thanks Bobby.

    Funny thing. I was looking at the splash well boots Monday afternoon and wondering what I could do to tighten up that area.

    Some motors you can't tie them in. [Older style]

    The newer style motors have a boss where the cables go into the motor pan and these 2in hoses slip over that boss and is clamped there. My new DF140 Suzuki's have the boss.[]

    How do you make your tie-in at the engine? The hose looks like it would be too thick to tuck into the engine clamp.

    Here are a couple close ups. The hoses screw into the threaded thru hull. Easy and neat looking. I got mine from shipyard marine.

    A better setup would be the flanges and swimming pool hose. That's what I call it. Some of the earily motors are not designed to accept this setup.

    It's the hose setup you see on bracketed boats. I can't find a pix right now. I did buy all of the stuff thru Surplus Unlimited and it's made by T-H Marine. They don't show the chrome fittings in their catalog, but I got them. They have Black & White fittings in their catalog.

    Throttle/Steering Cable Through Hole

    Anybody have a good way to waterproof the Throttle / steering cables as they come out the through-hole? I have the standard plastic boot with a zip tigh, but since they are so low in the transom area, water still gets down the hole into the bilge. The boat is a 1984 238.
