I seem to have stripped one of the tightening bolts on the rudder disc that enables you to change the tension of the rudder cable. Does anyone know where I can find a replacement disc? I’ve searched and all I can find is an upgrade kit by Berkley which includes new cables and disc to increase the degree or turning.

While nice, it’s $140 and I simply need to be able to tighten my cables again by purchasing a new disc.

Thanks for any insight!

Hi Castro,

So you've stripped/deformed the bolt hole of the disc or just the bolt itself? Either way, Get Outdoors can get replacement parts for you. Either call or email for availability/order time & cost. 800 450 6819 or info@shopgetoutdoors.com Be sure to tell them you're a NOG member.

I stripped the bolt itself. Unfortunately I can not loosen or tighten it any longer with any size Allen wrench. I assume my only option would be to buy an entirely new disc, cut the rudder cables, and then tighten with new disc in place.

Thanks for the referral, I will certainly contact them!

It may be possible to drill and tap to the next size up and use a new, larger set screw.
