63 Sea Skiff tachometer cable

Post by rjtipple » Sun Sep 16, 2018 3:56 pm

I need to find a replacement cable for my '63 Sea Skiff Sportsman. The length of the internal cable that broke is 12'-1-1/2". Any ideas on where to find one will be appreciated.

Napa used to have new internal cable kits at one time, not anymore.
If you know of a heavy truck repair garage, older trucks have cable driven tacs and speedos. They still rebuild them.
You are probably better off getting a whole replacement cable from places like www.classicboatconnection.com or others can recommend places here.
Boats are to be made of wood, otherwise, God would have grown fiberglass trees.
