Steering Cable for 1957 Peterborough Boat
by Geoff Clarke
(Carleton Place, Ontario, Canada)
Restoring a 1957 Peterborough 'Nomad' boat & need to completely replace the steering cable that runs from the steering wheel to the outboard motor as the coating has deteriorated badly over time.
It 'looks' to be the same 3/16" coated wire that one would use on a standard clothesline, but I'm wondering if that's an appropriate replacement choice for this usage?
Is there another alternative as I've been unable to find anything equivalent (so far). The total amount needed is ~40ft.
My email is: email@example.com Any advise gratefully received!
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
