We've worked on a few Barracuda's and that seems about right. I believe that there are two cables
(one between the helms and one aft); I can check if necessary as we have a customer with one locally. It's a LONG cable run and I'm guessing 8 Hr @ about 100/hr plus 200 for the cable and shipping
isn't out of line. Like a lot of marine
work labor rates vary quite a bit by market and skill level. Houseboats are problematic because many runs are actually pretty difficult and wall panels
and/or wall to wall carpet needs to be removed and replaced.

. Upper and lower (inside) helms use the same single steering cable. Steering cable broke and he was quoted $1,000.00 to replace, including installation
. Access looks good. Quote seems high to me. I told him I'd check with this forum because there is so much experience here. Any suggestions?
