Last year snapped my steering cables by leaving my trolling motor down and dummy me took off at full throttle. Is there any trolling motor repair guys out there ? Reply or PM ME and we'll work out a deal.
:-D Done the cable repair a few times over the years, it was tricky
the first time . Took a full morning to do ,breakdown,learn it's parts and workings ,reassemble.Ordered a spare set of cables the last time to keep in the boat and haven't had a problem in a while.... 2 Repair guy suggested I buy a newer model from him "because this one was too old to repair ". Was all the motivation I needed to do it my self......

Yep....The guy in Dekalb did good work for me on an old MinnKota. He is certified by both MotorGuide and Minnkota for repairs. He works out of his garage where he has a great shop with water testing and everything.
He is just off Hwy 38 in Dekalb.
Kinda started with the mess now. It's a Minn Kota 40 AT It seems the only problem is fishing the new cable back through the wire housing. Maybe make a slit in it and tape it back up ? I'll get but it looks like patience is a key with this sucker. Thanks for the advice.
