Hi Eric, I may have it on the boat and will be there next week--however, the cost I paid included acquiring and replacing the two cables as well as the rack and pinion so it may not be helpful. Cheers, Ian Pen Azen SM 302

Hi Ian,

Do you recall the approximate cost of the repair?

Hi Eric, I had a problem , not with my rack and pinion, but with a broken
cable--once on a Sharki about 16 years ago and the second time on Pen Azen a
year ago. The broken cable didn't stop us sailing about 2,300 miles till we
got to Guadeloupe to replace it. At the same time the guys in Guadeloupe
replaced the rack and pinion--the boat was then 9 years old with about
40,000 miles on the clock. It was not a difficult job except for separating
the steering wheel which took a lot of force and care. Cheers, Ian and Judy,
Pen Azen, SM 302, Hamble
