    Glad you posted this. It just saved me some money.
    While I’m not sure if I’m a spoke holder (don’t think I am) the factory steering wheel is pretty comfortable and I would have been very disappointed if the new one wasn’t.
    That wheel was on my winter list of things to do.
    Just crossed it off.
    Thanks!

    If you do a little looking around online you may be able to find a place that reconditions steering wheels.
    It’s been a while since I looked at it, but I know there are places out there that do it for classic car restorations. Maybe one of those places can help you out.
    You could probably send them some pictures to get an idea of what they can do for you.
    Here is an example of a couple that popped up when I searched google:

    Steve,

    I love that steering wheel! I'm looking to replace the one on my 2008 48 DA and was going to purchase one from FP Marine until I saw yours. Did you go through Marine Max? Mind sharing cost?
    Thanks.

    I bought it through this site directly. http://www.isotta.com/dett_prod.php?id=69
    For the life of me I can’t remember the cost but I don’t remember it being ridiculous. They were great to work with and they make the wheels for Searay but they won’t sell you the Searay center cap. I bought a stick on emblem from eBay and it looks fairly factory. I get a lot of compliments on it. It was an easy change out. The old one was a little stubborn so I used my impeller puller and it popped right off. Took about 20 minutes total. It looks even better with my new Raymarine Axioms 77A24A72-CD3B-4F6A-8EE1-F2ED82899AEE.jpeg
