Rotary Steering Cable Systems

Boat Rotary Steering Cable

Behind the steering wheel is a steering shaft and circular helm device. As the steering wheel/shaft is turned, the circular helm pushes or pulls the end of the steering cable back and forth through the rotary helm housing.

Rack Steering Cable Systems

Boat Rack and Pinion Steering Cable

Behind the steering wheel is a steering shaft and cylindrical helm device with a pinion gear, which mates with a set of gear teeth inside the rack. As the steering wheel/shaft is turned the pinion pushes or pulls the cable back and forth through the rack housing.
