Steering Cables

The rudder on the 110' chaser was operated by means of cables run from the wheel to the rudder quadrant, in some cases along the outside of the bulwarks and in some cases along the inside.

In either case, the cable ran beneath a shield where it passed across the deck between the pilot house and the bulwarks, as shown here:

This is the outboard arrangement, on subchaser SC 354, shown here at Inverness. The cable runs from the pilot house to the stern:

Here is the inboard arragement, showing the cable running between the bulwarks and the lifeline stanchions:
