The cable ID markings and length are stamped into the plastic sleeve within 2' of one end of the cable. Both ends are the same so the markings could be on either end.
They might even be at opposite ends (port/fwd, stbd/aft for instance).
Good luck looking.
They can be fairly easy to change by disconnecting both ends and securely taping one end of the replacement cable to one end of the original cable and pull.
It might also be difficult to do.
Once you establish the ID of the two cables and have a part number, cables are available from numerous sources. Just Google Morse cable plus the part numbers, you'll find a number of sources that have them in stock.
I have some much too long cables that I somehow incorrectly purchased for my 22C. If you find the part numbers and post them, I'll check the my cables. It's unlikely they are the same, but you never know.
