How to Measure for a Control Cable

When replacing your control cable, it's best to remove and measure your old cable before ordering the replacement. If measuring your existing cable isn’t possible, follow our guidelines below.

Measuring Control Cable

Measure as indicated along intended cable routing:

A = Gunwale to Centerline of cable connection
B= Length along Gunwale

A + B + 6" = Total Measurement
Round the total measurement off to the next full foot.

A(18") + B(90") + 6" = 114" or 9'6" (Round off to 10 ft)

Use this measurement to select your new control cable. If you have any questions along the way, feel free to speak with one of our technical representatives at:
