I have a Gemini
3000 on which i am installing the entire rig from a 3200, the rig is located 2ft further forward, needless to say there is much re engineering involved and one piece of information i am missing involves the location of the aft lower shroud
tie rod as it passes through the cabin
. I don't have a 3200 in the area that i can look at so i am hoping a 3200 or 3400 owner may be willing to set me straight. I have found a few pictures online that show the tie rod but what i cant tell is if the tie rod is vertical (plumb) in the fore and aft view or if it angles back to follow the line of the shroud
. It looks to be plumb in the pictures but i really cant tell as they are not taken from the side. The geometry of this tie rod is less than ideal but there is no choice on these boats due to the layout. Any help would be much appreciated.
