I ended up back at AutoMarine. A small family business that seem to specialise in Morse cables ... and have good stock. I would not mess about with measuring etc. Take the hit for a few days, remove them and take them to the shop. Its the only way to ensure the length and fittings are the same for your helm. In the long run this will save you time I am sure. As I said earlier if they don't have the correct size they will get them in quickly.
Not sure you have replaced cables before. A tip is to tie a thin rope, wire or thick string to the helm end. Then pull the cable out. When you come to put the new one back tie the string on the new helm end again then use the rope to help you pull the new one back through. Does not always work, but has helped me on loads of occasions.
