Leer - for sailing boat

Guys help, please can not find where to buy a leer for a sailing boat, found in Holland but it is very far. Where in the US can you buy not only the cable itself, but also the plastic coating ???

Re: Leer - for sailing boat

Sorry, but what is a "leer" for a boat? Not a term I am familiar with.

Re: Leer - for sailing boat

I’m with Jim on this one. What do you use “leer” for?

Where I’m from leer is for my wife.

Engine control levers and push-pull cables are everywhere.

Just pick a retailer near you.

For example, you might want to start looking at a variety of engine speed control levers to work out which one is right for you and your vessel:

and then look at the associated push-pull cables:

Re: Leer - for sailing boat

I should have also pointed directly to the varieties of cables and cable terminations:

Are you saying that a LEER is a morse or teleflex control cable?

Re: Leer - for sailing boat

I helped Stas move his boat and then went sailing for 2 days with him. I have contacted Stas about the leer and will get back when he clarifies. English is not his first language.

Maybe Stan is looking for a "lier" which is pronounced leer in English.
Lier is the Dutch word for winch.
This interpretation of leer is however difficult to connect to wire and plastic coating unless he means a come-a-long which would be "handtakel" or "handlier" in Dutch.Not clear however what use this would have on a boat.

Maybe but Stas is Russian. I think he spoke russian into his Google translate and it came out as leer.

I, too, am a little confused. Google Translate says it means "leather", but you describe a push-pull control cable, used for shifting a transmission, changing the throttle, or killing the engine by stopping the fuel. Made by Morse and Teleflex in different diameters (depending on the tension/compression needed) and throws (distance traveled from one position to the other) and terminations (outboards have many variations; most inboard applications have just a threaded stud).

They are surprisingly cheap and can solve a lot of issues (friction, mainly) when replaced.

Re: Leer - for sailing boat

Re: Leer - for sailing boat

I spoke to Stas and he is looking for lifelines. I don't know how leer came out of that but converting from Russian in Cyrillic to English can really be complicated for Mr. Google. I told him about West Marine and he now knows these are readily available.

Re: Leer - for sailing boat

thanks to all the guys for the answers !!! I have already figured out with a railer that this is a Dutch name, in Anglo-American it is “The Road of Life”, deck fencing, this forum helps me a lot. I want to restore my Cal for 2 years, I like to do the restoration of old equipment. For me, she is like a living person.
