Original steering unit 87 Sea Hunter?
« on: May 10, 2018, 03:59:17 PM »
Can anyone tell me what brand steering was used originally on the Sea Hunter?  My steering cable needs to be replaced due to a hole in the cable by the motor end.  Add to it that it is a tiring day steering and it is time to change it out. 

Want to install a no-feedback system but unsure of the brand currently installed.

Anybody?

Thanks.

Most the folks that are buying new Arimas are springing for hydraulic, the current mechanical just does not seem to last.  I would do some research on what is out there.   :twocents:

Pulled the unit and it was a Quicksilver brand.  Couldn't get cable to release from helm unit so the grinder made quick work of it. 

Installed a new Teleflex NFB unit and should be good to go now.

I purchased this cable for my SC 16, but sent it back because the original cable was still in great condition.
