Not beating this to death, but I was looking over YW to see how others had routed the transmission cables along the port side of the engine and I noticed a strange but consistent theme. All of the boats - specifically trawlers - had a dual helm setup and many of them had one set of throttle and transmission cables. I specifically looked for single Lehman setups.

Are people unhooking a helm? Is there something I am missing here? Is there a transmission magic trick that I missed out on?

There are two types of control setups, parallel and series. Our boat uses the series method to our single Perkins were the cable from the up control goes to the lower control and then a second control cable goes to the engine/tramsmission. The attached screenshot from Teleflex may explain it better.

My dual Lehman 135's are also set up with controls in series. Only one throttle and transmission cable to each side.
