Smoky - to clarify -

I was leaning toward it might be a good idea to lay everything out to explore
the best configuration of wire harnesses and steering cables prior to making
everything permanent.......
it is strictly a personal choice of how you route all the wires and cables.
for a dry run - lay it all out so you can make your notes.
once you start drilling holes in your boat, it is disheartening to find out later
that the route you chose was not the best - thus more holes.

good luck !!

If you have a Carolina Skiff dealer near you, or if you can locate anyone who owns a CS...you can look at the Omega-shaped fiberglass cable cover that they use to hide and protect their cables. Pretty slick arrangement, I found.

Looked kind of like this, from the end...

I have done the reverse ie turned a console boat into a tiller. The position where the weight(you and the console, fuel, friends, gear) will be is very important in a smaller boat. Mine likes most of the weight near the stern. Yours may be different. I would try and run it with everything still movable to find what works best if you can. I'm thinking strap the console in place with straps to the gunnels until you figure out the balance. Definitely important in a smaller boat.
