My Seafarer 30 has a Yacht Specialites pedestal steering
I have heard it called an Edson
knock-off, and I have heard that many of the Edsson parts
Last year my I noticed one 1/2 broken chain link, and frayed cable wires, so I priced a replacement from edson
. Edson used to make a 1/2" chain, but I was told it was no longer available, as most of theirs are 5/8".
It has about 1 1/2 - 2' of 1/2" roller chain, attached to the wire cables
I bought 10' of 1/2" stainless industrial roller chain for the same price
as Edson wanted for 2'. Then, I had a rigger swage new ends on wire, and used the largest clevis pins that would fit, to attach to the chain. I just drilled the end links a tiny bit larger to accomodate a beefier clevis pin.
Once I took the compass
off the pedestal
, it was easy to see hoe the chain went over the sprocket etc.
Still have 8' of chain if you need 1/2"!! Will sell cheap
, plus shipping
