    Steering cable

    Well after so much fun finally got the cable out.

    What is on the cable is Morris E300619 180 IN4300

    This cable measures 12'9" between the rack and the nut on the cable. I am told that means I need to order a 15' cable. 12'9" + 18" round up to next foot.

    I am trying to make sure that I am getting the right cable. Went to local marine supplier and they want $750.00. Looking on-line it appears that this cable in 15' is what I need.

    Since this says "Morse Command 200 Rack & Pinion Steering Cable by SeaStar Solutions®. Rack replacement cable for the Morse® 300619 cable used on the Command 200 rack steering system helms" I assume that the E300619 that is on my cable is the number I am looking to replace.

    $750 is insane! When I replaced the same looking sea-star cable in the 272 I had, it was only $200. Definitely shop around...

    Ack! $750??? That hurts, if it is indeed what you end up having to pay...
