I have a 1978 Prout Quest 31'. Shortly after the first of the year I will be going on the hard
to re-build rudders and do a bottom job on her. I am thinking that this is the time to convert to wheel steering
like the later models were. Information and documentation
is very hard to come by and the Prout Owners site is not very active.
I am considering using hydraulics with short stubs coming out of rudders where tillers now leave and a tie-bar between them. I have also considered a duo cable steering
with cable exiting the hulls, similar to old style I/O set up.
There are plenty of photos of steering stations on the Prouts , but I have been unable to find any information, picture , or even seen the actual mechanical set up and workings. If there is anyone who has any info on this I would greatly welcome it. I would like to clear the back deck
of the big sweeping tillers.
I am open to all suggestions
