I've got a 1996 Fortier 26. The steering locked up this summer and I've just pulled the cable and helm out of the boat.   It appears I can buy replacement parts from  Jamestown distributors. – However it has been suggested to me that I consider rebuilding with hydraulic steering rather than cable. Has anyone made this conversion? Any problems?
