New video on steering maintainance

Here is a new new video I just completed for Ocean Navigator Magazine and Edson Marine. It covers the basics of maintaining the pedestal end of a chain and cable steering system. Hope it is help to someone.

Wayne,

You have the video set to private so we can't watch it.

Thanks,

Jesse

Thanks, that was really helpful, it's my first spring commissioning, I had no idea how to take the pedestal apart.

He only mentions it briefly in the video but I would really recommend stuffing a rag down the mouth of the pedestal before you begin removing bolts and pins. I have found there is a 99% chance of me dropping something down there if I don't and almost no chance if I do.

Re: New video on steering maintainance

Very interesting and informative video, however I would love to see it brought to the next stage - ie maintaining / replacing the cables and terminating the ends where connected to the quadrant and the chain. If the cable pulley unit/quadrant is disconnected or moved on the rudder stock there is a serious re-alignment issue to ensure cables are not damaged

Happy sailing

Jacaranda

Re: New video on steering maintainance

I will be doing 2 more for Edson and Ocean Navigator Magazine, the next will be the lower end maintenance. The video is shot for that and I will start editing soon. After that I will do one on interfacing autopilots with your steering system. I will post when these are complete. Thanks for the good comments it helps keep me motivated.

Re: New video on steering maintainance

Very helpful.

Two things that I would suggest are to mark the compass location to avoid having to re-swing it, and to check the cables for meathooks while lubing it.

I use a teflon based product - Tri-Flow - for the cables themselves, 30 wt such as you suggest for the sheave bearings. Cheese cloth works well for checking/lubing the cable. Saves fingers too.

Thanks for the post. Hope to see more of them.
