Used to replace discontinued Detmar steering system on 1998 - 2003 26X and early 26M. Also direct replacement for Tattoo 26 factory system. Much more reliable, smoother and less sloppy than original. Requires some cutting on steering pedestal to install. Comes with instructions to retrofit. Includes cable, helm unit (sometimes known as a Blast..ask Cheryl), and bezel kit.

The high performance cable has less play, easier and smoother steering, and will keep the steering tight and responsive for longer. Later model 26Ms that already have a Teleflex steering system can just order the upgrade cable by itself, part #5707-1M4.

Most boats do not have the rudders perfectly alligned from the factory, this adjustable crossbar length crossbar allows you to allign your rudders parallel to each other. Your rudders will work better and have significantly reduced drag.
The high performance cable has less play, easier and smoother steering, and will keep the steering tight and responsive for longer. This is the cable only. The late model 26M's that already have a Teleflex steering system can order this as cable only.

If you do not have a Teleflex steering system you will need to order the full system as a kit.

You should NEVER sail with the engine connected to the steering, and this BWY kit makes it really quick and easy to connect and disconnect. Locks engine straight for easy and safe sailing. Vastly easier to use than the factory system that uses tiny nuts and bolts to connect and disconnect.

Note that this wheel brake will only work with rack & pinion steering systems, it will not work with the earlier 26X rotary steering assemblies.

AmSteel is a 12-strand construction of Samthane-coated Dyneema SK-60 fibers and is an economical alternative to AmSteel-Blue. AmSteel is a non-rotational rope that yields high strength and low stretch — equivalent to wire rope, but with only 15% the weight!
This rope has a very high strength-to-weight ratio, is stronger than wire rope constructions, yet it floats. In addition, it's flexible, easily spliced, and resists flex-fatigue and abrasion. The Samthane™ coating is abrasion resistant, and has different formulations for specific rope fiber types. The Samthane coating adds firmness and greatly improves wear life. It also enhances abrasion resistance, reduces cutting and snagging, and helps prevent contamination.
