I replaced my "car style" wheel with this 5 Spoke Schmitt Wheel I purchased on eBay, I must say I like it a whole lot better. Highly recommended. set-72157603719384955/

I did the same last spring, also adding an Edson power knob.
This spring I intend to replace the helm chair with an Arrigoni Design teak ladderback chair. Both they and Pompanette have very nice stuff in this regard, albeit $$$.

Are your tach and speedo gauges brand new? If not they sure look like it.

I have an 2001 Daunless with SmartCraft gauges and they are in pretty rough shape compared to those.

the wheel looks nice as well

The gauges are the originals from 2001 actually, just a very clean boat. Thanks. We love our Ventura!

I like the wheel as well. I would switch in a moment but when you boat is located in a colder climate, the all-steel wheel is very cold to the touch, especially at 5:30AM on a cool spring morning. Give me the padded wheel!!
