Hopeful THE POWER OF SAILNET will provide someone with actual experience on your boat. It will depend, of course, how how the cable is routed through your boat.

As a reference, I did this on my Catalina 30 in about 3 hours. I had an Edson pedestal, and getting the cables removed and attached there was a bit of a pain. I had to remove my autopilot to do so. I'm pretty mechanically inclined, and had never done this before.
