Re: Reroute engine "stop cable"?

To clarify: the pedestal is corroded. As is the platform situated beneath the compass that supports the pedestal guard and to which the stop cable plunger is attached. I want to fix the pedestal and replace the platform and pedestal guard to accommodate new instruments. That leaves me with the stop cable plunger--if it is no longer attached to the platform, where can I reroute it? Mechanic at the boatyard suggested running the cable to the cockpit seat, with the plunger just beneath for easy access from the helm. I am leery of this idea.
