Fix it right the first time. Buy the parts, it's not all that difficult to work on. the hardest part would be getting the pedestal base bolts loose because most are aluminum (drill em out) order the new sheaves from Edson.com. The cable comes off the quadrant very easy. just very very greasy.

Edson has your boats steering and parts listed here's the PDF file from edson
http://www.edsonmarine.com/support/w...pdfs/S-631.pdf

on the parts page;

Welcome to sailnet! You can fix your steering the right way. really. Good luck!

How useable is your 'emergency tiller' arrangement? On some wheel-steered boats these are difficult to use effectively with the binnacle in place. If your standby tiller is OK to use, maybe get yourself home that way and deal with the issue when you get back.

View Boat Photos - YachtWorld.com

Looking at Photo #3 here it looks like there's a reasonable distance between the rudder post (under the cover at the aft end of the cockpit seating) and the wheel to allow use of a tiller. By rights the boat will have one sitting somewhere below, perhaps forgotten.

Otherwise you're stuck with Denise's plan (not a bad one) to fix it all before the trip - providing you'll have the parts, tools and time to do so.

my emergency tiller was mounted under the lazz in the cockpit, might want to look there. should be tough to miss... lol

btw, as D mentioned those bolts are a bear. i removed the same pedestal from a boat for resale and it was a real beach. i ended up having to use a compressor and an impact driver. might wanna consider the tools you will need and bring anything that might come in handy. hate to see you drive two hours to find you dont have what you ned
