I have not installed my deck yet. I am curious about running the rudder cables before the deck gets installed. I see pictures in the CLC product catalog that show the cables coming through the rear deck in plastic sleeves. I image that the cables are run from the foot braces high and inside the kayak, through holes drilled on each side of the aft bulkhead and after the hatch is cut, they are fitted through holes drilled in the rear deck. I also image that the cable coming through the rear deck in the middle of the deck that raises and lowers the rudder can be attched to the top (inside) of the rear deck as long as it does not take a sharp turn.
Is this correct? Are there better options? Are there cockpit considerations that I should be aware of? Do you worry about the holes in the deck?
Thanks for the help!
