My hot foot is sticking, how should I lube the cabe? Should something be replaced? It will push down HARD and not come all the way back up

Don't take this too stupidly. Do you think it is safe to have a boat with a hotfoot that doesn't work properly?


Have you checked the spring? Have you taken the cable off to see what's tight? Is there fishing line stuck in it?

You need to look at it.

If you find nothing causing it to bind, it may be time to replace the cable. Most have a return spring that can be adjusted for tension.

My hot foot was sticking a bit and I found the throttle cable had been wrapped with a twist-tie and it was too tight. Lossen it a bit, problem solved.

I have a brand new one and it has even been back to the dealer once and is still sticking once you get close to full throttle.
