volvo penta trim tabs

im just about to buy some penta trim tabs

they come with 2x 2.5m cable and 1x5m cable.

does this sound like enough cable? obviously one for power, one for connecting tabs to control unit etc etc.

but im just a little worried that from the transom of my boat up the back, down the side and to the gauges will be longer then 5m.
my boat is only 5.5m long, but there would be a bit of winding aroundto get there...

 any help be greatly appreciated

Should be fine. I have just installed them in a 7.5m boat. Can always check with a tape.
