Edson’s Quadrants are made from cast Manganese Bronze or 356-T6 heat-treated Aluminum. Available in 8” through 36” radius sizes, the Edson Quadrant is effective whether mounted fore or aft of the rudderpost. The quadrants are machined to accept #618 Take-Up Eyes, making installation and adjustment of steering cables easy. All bearing surfaces are machined, a positive fit is assured by the Edson Capped Hub, and the clamping action allows installation without having to remove the rudder. Please read through EB380, our installation worksheet for more details on each securement method.
