Steering cable seized
I bought a new cable earlier this year and haven't had any problems with it at all. For the last week we have had an unusually large amount of rainfall and today I found that the steering cable on my boat is seized. I last used the boat about 6 weeks ago so I was quite surprised (shocked) to find that it no longer works. I removed the cable to isolate the problem (cable or pivot bearings) and found that it is most definately the cable. How do I resurect this cable? Is there anything I can do? My boat is not kept under cover (inside a shed etc) but I have had it covered with a synthetic sheet (tarp in Australia) that has been doing a great job of keeping the rain out of most of the boat, or so I thought.
