A marine control cable is more than just a way to remotely operate your engine and transmission; it is the direct interaction between the helm station and the performance of the vessel. Long gone are the days of 'bicycle cable' throttle and shift control cables. Today’s cables can sustain longer runs (up to 60+ feet). True long life is accomplished by a lubricated, sealed core marine control cable in a rugged housing.

Marine control cables are manufactured for nearly every engine / transmission combination. From the generic 33C cable that harkens back to the original Morse Cables to manufactured cables for Mercury, Mariner, Yamaha, Nissan, Tohatsu, Force outboards to Morse Series 40 and 60 control cables that can tame a 100+ HP inboard and work for twin helm stations 40' away! Whether you have an outboard in a runabout, are a weekend sailor or a high performance racer, you will have a system operated by a marine throttle or shift cable. Shift into forward and throttle up with a guaranteed salt-water proven control cable.

shift cable

my shifter is really hard to shift into reverse. I think I need a new cable

We carry a wide variety of control cables. If you can get the part number off the existing cable, that would be the best way to find the replacement. The part number is usually on the cable jacket/cover within a foot or so of the end of the cable.

Uflex Connectors

I am trying to hook up my c8 uflex cables to the trans and throttle on a pre 79 Johnson 35 hp outboard. What cable ends do I need for this combination?

OMC Control Connection Kit

Teleflex Morse MT3 Control

Is this control compatible with a 2007 Mercury 50hp 4 stroke outboard?

Go2marine has the Mercury style control cables for your mercury outboard.

Throttles won't stay put

I have twin Honda outboards that since new the throttles want to pull back from the RPM’s I try to set them at. I have tightened the throttles to the point that they are hard to push forward with limited success getting the throttles to stay set. Does this sound like something a new set of good cables will solve?

New cables will definitely help!

OMC Cobra Shift cable

Hoping to confirm the right/best shift cable from my engine shift assembly to the stern drive. I have a 1987 Chevy 350 with the OMC Cobra stern drive. Shifting was always difficult (but is now jammed from going into forward) even with expert mechanical assistance, tried all of the advice on the internet. I am going to pull the drive (and probably find the shift cable end packed with salt, and replace the cable – got 5 years of service on the last one). Any ideas on how to improve this short of junking the drive? Thanks much,

One cable is not better than another so I would suggest going with the Sierra Cable. Unfortunately, there is not much you can do to make a shift cable last any longer. Here is a link to the shift cable replacement for your application:
