Measuring For Your Steering Cable
When replacing the steering system on your pontoon boat you will need the following measurements to determine the cable length.
A. Measure from the center of your pontoon's console to the edge of the starboard side of your deck.
B. Measure your pontoon boat's deck length from the center of your console to the point where your engine is attached to the transom.
C. Measure from the starboard edge of your deck to the center of your transom.
Add A,B, C + 12", round up to the closest foot and that's the length you need.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Do you have a shorter cable? I did the measurements and it comes to 13 ft. The cable on there now looks to big as it runs to the front, then loops back and zigzags to the back. It is very hard to turn the wheel. How is this one lubricated?
No. We do not offer any smaller of a cable for the Pontoon Boat Steering System.
Does this unit come with Transom mount? I'm converting an old Pulley and cable system to this SSC13716 system. Or do have a better system? 18 horse motor. 12' pontoon. Any info would be great.
Unfortunately, no. This Pontoon Boat Steering System will not work with that type of mount. Since we are not boat specific we are not familiar with which is going to work best for your application .
My plan is to replace the entire steering system from the helm console to the engine (45hp Mariner outboard). Do you believe the cable & thread sizes on this replacement system to be a universal fit?
Yes. We have a sheet that shows which motor work for this Pontoon Boat Steering System. Please email us @ Support@pontoonstuff.com
My pontoon is center consol will this system work?
Yes. This Pontoon Boat Steering System should work just fine when mounting to a Center Pontoon Console.
I have a 24’ Northwood 1990 and I need to replace the steering cable only. Do you sell just the cable?
Unfortunately, we do not carry the steering cable by its self. We sell the entire set as one.
Can you move it to the port side of the boat. Do you make a steering cable that goes from starboard to port side.
You will be able to adjust the Pontoon Boat Steering System so it will be on the Port Side. Most of our Pontoon Porducts are universal.
I have an 87 JC Tritoon with a 165 OMC I/O. It is 22 ft in length. Steering system is shot after 30 years on the water. It has floated on the water since I bought it new., I don't even have a trailer. Do you have a replacement steering system for this boat?
Yes one of our steering sysytems should work for your pontoon boat. I have included the instructions for measuring for your new pontoon steering system below.
Measuring For Your Steering Cable When replacing the steering system on your pontoon boat you will need the following measurements to determine the cable length. A.

We have a 12 ft pontoon, using a 15 horse tiller steer. Would this work on my Pontoon?
It will work but it will be more involved then just purchasing the steering sysyem. You will need to make some other modifications as well. For example your motor will need to be an electrical start or need to be converted to one. Plus you will need to locate the correct throttle controls and cables.
This is a replacement system. My 24' Starcraft is 1980s vintage. There is no console nor any steering system. I have a long shaft Suzuki 15HP, which I tiller steer. I'd like to add something more convenient than the tiller. Would this replacement system be a reasonable starting point for a new installation? Of course, throttle and gear shift would be required, too.
Yes absolutely. This replacement pontoon steering system would be the best option in your situation.

I have a 20' 2006 Bennington pontoon I just purchased. The pontoons were badly corroded, so I had three fiberglass pontoons custom made and installed to replace them. First time out the steering gear box broke and had to be towed back to the dock. The steering wheel spins freely and I can see the post turning in the gear box under the console. Will your replacement box work for me, and do I need a new cable all the way back to the motor?
I believe this Pontoon Boat Steering system will work for you. This does come with either a 15' of 16' cable.
I need a 2002 smokercraft steering cable kit (with the gear box) do you have that ? its a 24 foot boat.
Unfortunately, we do not. You would need to look for that specific part at either a marina or Ebay. All of our products are universal and not boat specific.
do you measure from each end of the cable hosing or from end to end the cable sticks out from the housing about 12 in.
You will need to measure from end to end on this Pontoon Boat Steering System.
will this work for a 210 Gemini Premier pontoon
You will need to compare measurements to determine if it will fit or not.
If my existing cable is 14â will the 15â one still work?
I do not think this application would work for you. You want to make sure you get a 14' Steering System.
Is it possible to buy a replacement cover for the steering mechanism? I just need the piece behind the steering wheel that covers the mount.
Unfortunantely, we do offer that piece individually.
