Arima Life / Re: Cable boot cracked

That is a common problem from that boot being so low down in the splash well. Take Blindmonkys advice, or Yats advice and fill it in with a sealant from the back, or go with hydraulic steering and raise the cable boot and patch the old boot hole :twocents:

Do you have pics? 2107? Do you mean 2017? Not quite sure what your describing :shrug9: The cable boot is not sealed anyway so shouldn’t be a problem
It is the boot that holds cables in the transom well.  My only concern is that when water gets in the well, which it does, some of the water will go into Bilge through tear in boot instead out drain hole.  Probably not a big deal but might as well fix.

Remove and replace with rigging hose. No more water entry into the area where most of us have batteries.   First Cabin has a picture on this site of when he did his.

If you go for it, some peel and stick contact paper/drawer liner in textured black, plus some Marine Tex and sandpaper, will cover up a lot of dash carnage.  Clean up the holes, back then with masking tape, then fill with Marine Tex.  Sand it smooth, then cover with the black plastic.  Or spend the $$ and get new dash decals from Arima. 

I had to repair some of that on my old chaser.

I recommend a shock absorbing pedestal.

Since I got my shock pedestal, I sit down. Now my legs and back hurt more if I stand. Better to sit and let the pedestal take all the bouncing rather than my poor knees and back.

The water I operate in around Dana Point, Long Beach/Catalina Channel is relative clean. No sediment or abrasive particles like you would get in a River estuary.

Thanks guys.  Next question.  Their is a footing bracket that needs to be mounted to the floor.  How are others mounting/securing things to the floor of their arima?  Lag bolts?  How long? 

We may also fasten a piece to the liner wall down by the floor.  How thick is the fiberglass liner and how much space is between it and the hull sides?  What is the gap filled with if anything?
