Steering Wheel

Just wondering if anyone can recommend a supplier for a new steering wheel to match my boat? It's a little worn and UV affected, and I'd like to replace with original or as close to as possible. I've priced them with the dealers down here and the price is just out of control.

Grant makes a lot of wheels. Not saying they made that one but they have a wide selection.

I like your center piece.

I've searched the web and discovered that MasterCraft have been using these steering wheels for years Gussi Italia Steering Wheels [url="http://www.syntecind.com/marine/steering-wheels/gussi-italia®-steering-wheels"]
There is a PDF catalogue of wheels at the bottom of the page that includes the current wheels in different anodized colours.

I could not find a wheel I liked, so I polished out the aluminum and used some Duplicolor Vinyl Spray paint. Just an option...

Wheel looks good, the originals are in that catalogue, I found one through eBay US, shipped to Aus. for $93.00AUD = less that 1/3 of the dealer price.

Sodar, did you take the wheel off to spray the duplicolor vinyl spray?

Cam, how has your's been holding up?

I noticed that if you don't wash your hands really good after putting on sun block the paint on the wheel starts to come off in your hands. Well, the wife figured that part out.

Yes. Clean it really well, too.

Mine has held up great, but yours' probably gets about 10x more use than mine with living at the lake for the season!
