Steering Pedestal Wanted

Anybody out there that has a Steering Pedestal for a reasonable price. I like to convert from tiller to wheel to make it easier for my crew and I like more space in my cockpit. The 3 ft tiller with its swing takes a lot of room when sailing and tacking.

See my PM but most wheels take up a lot more room out of the cockpit than a tiller and most newbies learn quicker on tillers. Just say'n...

Also, tillers are simpler to maintain, less expensive to maintain, and don't add as much weight or complexity to a boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Edson steering $$$$$$$$$$$.....

This should get your attention;

1. Edson Classic Series Chain and Wire Steering Pedestal - $854.58
2. Edson 36" Stainless Destroyer Wheel - $626.91
3. Edson Steering Wheel Nuts - $40.92
4. Edson Standard Clutch and Throttle Controls - 329.80
5. Edson Straight Pedestal Guard Kit - $268.38
6. Edson Teak Fold Down Luncheon Table - $499.99
7. Edson 4" idlers - $369.00
8. Edson - 2 1/2" Pedestal Riser - $154.98
Total = $3142.56 + Tax



Getting all of the above (lightly used) at the Dania Marine Flea Market for $400 = Priceless.

You will find a pedestal at a reasonable price but its the price of all the bits that get you.

And no, mine is not for sale.

Gtod25, $3K hence my question, does anybody have one?
Some of the items listed aren't needed or can be easily made by me.
I'll check that Dania referral out.
As to you other guys; Yea I know a tiller is easier to maintain, nicer sailing, etc., but that is not what the "bosses" want. Tiller is how the skipper selected the boat contradicting other opinions of other owners. Now that they know what it feels to sail a boat as was intended we can go to the simple life if money permits.
Thanks,

No affiliation, just saw it on the Ericson website and thought of your post.

I also remember a sticky listing salvage/used part suppliers but I can't find it at the moment.

EJO i was at a place in Quincy Mass. this am. called Continental marine and they are in process of stripping out and Irwin 35 it has a complete system on it with about a 30 inch wheel. this is a square style pedestal with engine controls but not sure if it has a compass. i believe it has the engine temp and oil pressure. you can call JON @ 617-719-8232. leave message and he will call you back. it may take a little while or following day. he is the son of the owner of the yard and is usually out and about stripping boats or showing people stuff. Mike p.s. their prices are 50% of new. also this is a complete unit still fully attached and appears to work fine.

Thanks

thank you all for the references and info. I think we are going to wait until next year so I'll wait until then to dive into pricing this job.
Again thank you all for your replies.
