Boat maintenance is important
Especially older boats. This is an article from a newspaper in my hometown.
Not to mention wearing a PFD when on plane.

Steering cable snapped. If that happens at speed I can imagine everyone going over, sad story man. True though, upkeep is the key to happy boating!

That very thing happened to a great fiddle player up in North Texas, Rick Solomon, 10-12 years ago in Lake Tawakoni. Steering cable broke, Rick got tossed, they found him a couple days later.Son, we live in a world with lakes, and those lakes have to be guarded by men with fishing rods.
Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinberg?

My steering cable snapped this spring on Travis up the perdenales. I was cruising about 40 when I trimmed down to go through a boat wake, soon as I went through my boat took a hard left turn by itself and I shut it down almost swamping the boat. Very scary to say the least, my buddy said I thought you wanted to fish this cove, I said think god the cove was here or we would have been on the bank. Cable outer jacket snapped at the nut where it mounts to the motor. I don't know how we didn't get thrown out of the boat.
