OK, I know there is a How-To write up on this, somewhere, anyone have a link to one? I know most of the how to, but some sort cuts would be nice to know

I just did this 2 weeks ago. I duct taped the new cable to the old cable and threaded them through, back to front. Took about 2.5 hours. If I was doing it again, I'd duct tape the old cable to a rope, pull everything through, and then tape the new cable to the rope and thread it through. The rod on the rudder end of the old cable made pulling everything through much more difficult. It kept getting hung up. Also, I'd have another guy help me - the job would've been much easier and quicker if one guy was pushing and one guy was pulling. I must have walked back and forth about 50 times. And, I'd wear gloves. I was covered in grease and oily bilge stuff by the time I was done. Just FYI, when you're back at the rudder, take the opportunity to grease it and the pivot thing that holds the steering cable. I didn't even know the things had grease fittings before, and it makes a huge difference.

When I did this on my 1999 SAN, I pulled the center floor, required some seat removal, and it was open and easy at this point. The only threading I had to do was behind the dash.
