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:D 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.

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,

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.

Again thank you all for your replies.:)

The steering system includes Yacht Systems pedestal and wheel with place for compass and accessory (depth finder, etc.), Edson guard, and rods/cable/hardware.

If you can use both I don't see why you could not remove the wheel, cable, and sprockets/sheaves, to make her a 100% tiller boat. Might not be easy as you might have to drop the rudder to do so. I'm not familiar with your type boat to give you detailed instructions, but it should be possible.
