Steering quadrant replacement?

Postby lauraj » Thu Oct 30, 2014 1:17 pm

Has anyone used the Constellation™ Quadrants sold by Lewmar?
Looks like they can be pretty customized, but I don't see how the bar connector arm can be attached?
other sources for replacement parts?
Ours is looking pretty worn with some broken pieces and I am thinking replacement.

Final result. Lewmar is going to weld a plate (for the arm to the steering rod) onto the top of their quadrant.
price $650.

Lewmar made the new one, but the angle of the attachment arm for the steer bar was a little off.
Works, but had to enlarge hole for steering bar.
