When charging through the stormy seas, you suddenly fear losing control of the wheel, as it has been decades since the boat steering cable has been replaced. Next time you are on shore, consider picking up an extra boat steering cable in the case that you find yourself in another rough situation. As vessels age, so do their steering systems, but with the right tools, replacing the system is an easy do-it-yourself project. You can browse the large inventory of boat steering wheel cables on eBay and find the specifications you need for your boat. Take note of your rotary, rack, and hydraulic as the new boat steering cable should match the old. Check out brands like Seastar and Suzuki for the gear you need. Boat steering cable racks, which are used for rack steering — the most efficient steering method — are also available in large quantities, making it easy to find the correct make for your boat. When your steering is on point, boating can be worry free; enjoy the sun and the breeze of the open sea, knowing you can get from point A to point B.
