Scroll down to your state forum, and then ask for a marina or boat store close to your location.

Measure the length of the cable and then go search for teleflex steering cables. Jamestowndistributers and iboats has some good info on figuring out which one it is and youtube has some videos if you feel up for it.

I'm guessing it could be done for around $100-120 for the cable plus shop time of an hour or two ($60-80/hr) so in the $200 to 250 range.

Believe he is looking for info and not a mechanic.

Shoot do it yourself. It's easy. Biggest pain is running the cable

Sounds to me like he is looking for a mechanic. Its awfully hard for anyone to give any kind of information when he doesnt take the time to give any information. Is the boat a stick steer? A console? Is it a rack and pinion setup? Is it a cable setup? Is it a pulley and line setup? How long are the cables? Where is he located? What kind of boat is it? Is it a factory steering setup, or is it aftermarket? Everyone here will help, but were not going to play 20 questions trying to figure out your problem.
