In the inboard rudder cable arrangement, the cable runs between the lifeline stanchions and the bulwarks. This image shows cable guides installed to the deck.
Note: The posts in the upper right are the support posts for the starboard bridge wing. This is looking forward, from amidships. The cover of the rudder cable between the pilot house and the bulwarks (angled, in this case) runs just forward of those posts.
Counting the stanchions from the bottom of the photo upward, I see what appear to be cable supports in these locations:
between stanchions 2 and 3
between stanchions 4 and 5
between stanchions 6 and 7
between stanchions 8 and 9 (maybe)
This suggests that perhaps they were located in every other space.
