1. Sillete, I think, was keeping with tradition or helping the company. It worked only OK. Think Lucas electric
for drive units. Finniky.
2. The steering
is just rope
and pullys. When raised they slacken so do not affect the drive much. When the drive is down they tighten and rudders and drive turn together.
3. I don't have the diagram at hand but all work as pull-pull if I recall
4. My salon
table was designed as a berth. Drop it and the back rests became part of the matress. Bigger than the master berth.
5. 6'6" is asking for it. I am 6'3" and made it OK, but had to make a half pillow so my head
was at the bulkhead and feet had mattress under them. 6'6" means diagonal sleeping. Most just don't get that being over 6' is an unrecognized handicap. Think drinking fountains, counter tops.....everything. And, oh. Toilets....
6. Not me. Just struggled. Same for shower
8. Lots. See PM.
