First and biggest problem: The steering cable has corroded in the guide tube (Stainless cable and Auminum guide tube). I was told this is common and if I take it to a boat dealer for the repair, The estimated cost is $500 or maybe a little less. It don't look to hard to replace if I can find the steering cable replacement. My Nitro is a 1998 16' Rick Clunn Edition, (Hull ID BUJ19527J596). Can anyone tell me the part # or the correct length replacement? Next problem is the driver overboard engine shutoff switch. It is intermittent. It looks like this is going to be a nasty fix as it is built into the remote throttle control. Does anyone know of an aftermarket safety switch that will reposition to the dashboard, or elsewhere, ? Any help on this one? Lastly, There is a faint odor of Gasoline when opening the rearmost hatch where the batteries are. The previous owner told me that smell was normal. What say ye on this one?
