Teleflex cable replacement

I was disappointed to find that the Teleflex steering cable on my Waverider Mustang had corroded and split. It was fitted a fair few years ago but like most the boat hasn't had that much use, probably 150 hours or so. The split was between the side of the splashwell and the motor, clearly this area ...
