Cable Steering Systems

This page has information on how to measure for the length of steering cable needed.  Please look to the left under
"Steering (Cable Systems)" and click on a style of system for more information.

How To Determine Cable Length.
For New Installation:
  Measure cable routing path in boat as follows:
A= Center line of wheel to gunwale.
B= Dash to transom.
C= Gunwale to centerline of cable connection at the center of the tiller.

For Tilt Tube Mounting, add A, B & C + 6", round up to next even foot.
For Transom/Splashwell/Stringer Support Mounting, add A, B & C, then subtract 6" and round up to the next even foot.  Order that length cable.  That formula works for both rack and rotary steering.
