Ok, i have only had this boat for 1 year and it is a 92'. The shift lever seems like it shift fairly hard and i'm wondering if that is like a lubricating problem or is more like a trans problem in a vehicle. Cars i know a little about, boats are a different animal to me. Any help would be appreciated. I'm also looking to replace my steering cable so i figured i'd look into the controls as well.

Thanks for any help..it is MUCH appreciated!

If it's a single lever shift-throttle control, there's a friction adjustment which may not be adjusted right. Shift-throttle do not require lubrication, but the helm units do occasionally. Have fun!

Don't adjust too loose ... you don't want the boat taking off from a gentle bump against the lever. Also, shift briskly, not gently. Slow, gentle shifting tears up the internals in the lower unit. You shouldn't hear a bunch of clicking as you're shifting!
