A picture would be good. If it's just the outer covering there is a heatshrink that is available with glue on the inside that melts to form a watertite seal. Bought at any good electronic supply store, for a cheap fix. But I would replace the cable, if the housing is shredded it's likely damaged on the inside as well. While your at it replace the inner cable or at the very minimum inspect it's full length for chaffing damage, fraying, corrosion or all of the above. I hope your boat is out of the water cause it'll leak from the shredded cable sheath if it's not.

This thread was created for the cable mod, not to answer questions, in the future can you please start another thread...more people get to see it that way as well.
