are turnbuckles good idea on rudder quadrant on new sailboat steering cables?
I wouldn’t and I cant imagine that it would work without problems. Either to damage the turnbuckle or the quadrant. I would just use stainless steel cable clamps/bulldogs/wire clips (makes for easy adjusting), stainless steel thimbles to the threaded eye bolt (make sure the eye is welded closed) and some 7×19 stainless steel wire. The other end that attaches to the chain should either have a chain swage or also a thimbled eye made with a nicro press sleeve and heat shrink tubing to protect the rough edges. That’s the way Edson Marine likes it and I tend to agree. Go with what works; no grease, no turnbuckles and no funny business.
Hope this helps and thank you for the comment.
