Routing both cables near the port side appears
to have two advantages...
#1) The tiller mount can be moved stern-ward
without the right-hand rope rubbing a scupper
#2) More space under the seat is clear for storage
for additional flotation foam.
However after fishing today, I suspect that just
installing the handle backwards will place the tiller
in an adequate location for me. I am also less
concerned about sacrificing rod carriers with the
handle backwards. The tiller shouldn't hit the
butt of a rod with the handle backwards. I only
use the inner and outer rod carriers anyway.
I don't use rods tubes as well. This is how I arrange all:

That makes no sense to me.
It has a sense. The left rope is straigh to the trolley, with 0° angle.
the right rope has about 15/20° angle.
When you turn right your left rope is strained and his path is 3 inches (that's an example ).
When you turn left, your right rope is strained and his path is 3 1/3 inches.
So you have 2 solutions:
1/ You strain the two ropes when the tiller is middle and when you turn left your left rope is so strained you cannot reach the abutment.
2/ you make it going on the abutment but when the tiller is middle, the ropes are laxity and the rudder go where it wants...
