    Does anybody have a recommendation for a good conduit for running steering cables that will be spray foamed into place? The cheapest would be ideal!

    The cheapest pvc pipe is about $5/foot.

    We're looking to running steering and shifting cables through a 3" conduit from our console to our stern outboards through a gunnel high compartment that is to be filled with spray in foam. If something cheap can be found it will be used for varying lengths of boats, most under 20ft.

    No, I was talking pvc drainpipe, for plumbing. Not schedule 40, but drain pipe. Go to Home Depot or Lowes. Don't buy from the place below, $124 shipping for a $6 item is a bit much. You can easily heat and bend the stuff if needed. This piece is 3" x 10 feet.
