Replacing steering cables on a boat can be easy or very complicated. I have a Center Console, dual engine boat that was starting to steer a little stiff. When this begins to happen I personally replace my steering cable. Yes, you can lubricate it but we use our boats 12 months out of the year and if the steering is stiff in the summer it will stick in the winter. If you can get the numbers off of the cable it will make life easier for ordering a replacment. However, as in our case the numbers were worn off and were not legable. When you measure for the replacement, measure from the center line of the controlling motor to the starbard or port side of the hull which ever side your cable is running to, add 6" to this dimension, measure from that point directly up the gunwale to the center line of the steering wheel, add 6". Then take your final measurement from the gunwale to the center of the steering wheel and add 6". Add all these numbers up and round up to the next foot. If your cable runs in conduit under the deck make sure that you allow for this extra length. My actual measurements came up to a 17 foot cable. However, I had two feet of turns under the deck that I did not allow for, crap..... So I also ordered a new helm and replaced that, problem number two>>>> to remove a steering wheel most of the time you take the center cap off the the steering wheel and loosen the center nut to the top of the shaft and smack with a hammer while pulling up on the wheel. When it doesn't come off you have to make a run to the auto parts store and buy a wheel puller. YES I DID... Anyway, like i said it could be a quick and easy job or things can get complicated, trust me they usually will get complicated.
Do it now, the fish are about to run. Come on down and lets go fishin...

Jim, we just made it home. Violet said it was the best time, fishing, the beach, the rides, and spending time with her family (she doesn't see them often. She was excited to tell her mom about the shark and 2 flounder. I really want to thank you for showing us a great time. There is no way, on my salary, I could have afforded to give them, and myself, that kind of trip. Also, I didn't think about it until your daughter called you, that I had taken you away from spending time with her on Fathers day. I hope you were able to catch up on that. Again, we had a great time, and I can't thank you enough for making the time. Have a great summer.

I have never hunted waterfowl before meeting Captain Jim. He has me hooked on ducks and geese, we hunt together about 4 times per year. He used my photo for the 8 lb flounder we have caught sea bass on wrecks, flounder and croakers in shore I always have a great time and I am currently helping him when he needs me.

Captain Jim has always put me on birds or fish. We have been hunting and fishing with him for over 10 years. Fantastic time and plenty of action, look forward to seeing you this year.

Hey folks I have known and hunted with Captain Jim for many years. I promise he will work his butt off trying to get you into elk, deer, waterfowl or anything else you are chasing with him.
Don Cook - Caledonia, New York
Dear Jim - I just wanted to let you know that it was a real pleasure meeting you. You are a class act. We came close on elk a couple of times but that is only good when you're playing horse shoes. Will pass on your fins and feathers outfitters info to my duck hunting friends and we will see what happens. Keep in touch and take care.

Rarely do you find an outfitter with the knowledge, professionalism and "hunting buddy" friendliness that we found in Fins and Feather Outfitters. Captain' Jim and his first mate Scotty were an absolute HOOT to hunt with!!! Captain Jim really knows the birds and how to get you hip deep in them. My buddies and I shot all day and we went home with a boat load of birds and great memories of our time hunting the bay. Treat yourself to a fantastic experience, book a trip with this guy, you won't regret it! P.S. Bring a buttload of shells!!!!

"Captain Jim put us into some excellent brant hunting, and well as some quick shooting at those little speedy flying buffle heads. We had a large group with six of us but everyone was able to get in a lot of shooting and even did a little missing. We limited out on brant each day and one member of our group was able to collect an old squaw which he was very excited about. Hammerin Hank was ready and up to the task to get every bird that hit the water. We had a lot of laughs and we look forward to trying to get together for more shooting on some snow geese. Thanks again."
Lloyd Brown - Raymore, Missouri
Jim was a true professional the day that he guided my youngest son, Colin (16), and I during our first elk hunting trip. After three different guides in five days of bow hunting, both of us agreed our most enjoyable day was the one spent with Jim. His knowledge of the area and the elk was thorough, his strategies were sound and his calling was impressive. I definitely recommend Jim Weiser to anyone looking for a quality outdoor experience.

The guys in my office went to the Great American Outdoor Show in 2014 and met Capt. Jim at his Fins & feathers booth . We decided to do a father-son fishing trip and Capt. Jim was first class all the way. He put us on fish, and gave us quite a few great tips on how to improve our angling skills. We had a great day brought back fish and many memories. We would highly recommend him to all.

Hey guys and of course ladies, if your looking for a great time and nice hospitality, hook up with Jim at Fins and Feathers Outfitters. You will not regret it. You will not see him as just another guide, trust me. Hey Jim old buddy, hope to do it again soon. JUST DO IT GUYS.....
Fins and Feathers Outfitters Thanks guys, caught a good variety just nothing legal. Shark, blue fish, jacks, sea bass, flounder, sea robins, skates. It was like fishing in a nursery even 21 miles off shore. Maybe next time.... Great group of guys, look forward to having you all back down.

This was a great time and Captain Jim is top notch on accommodating the hunt and just a lot of fun to go out with. We hunted 3 days and had some limit hunts for a great time call Jim for good hunt.
