    Default Drag boat steering wheel

    What steering wheel does everyone use in a drag boat. I found two grant wheels I like but one is 11" and the other is 13". Thanks

    I would say it would be your preference. My boat has a 12" wheel, but I have seen boats with smaller and a little larger. Pick which one you like the best.

    The one on the right seems to have more room and is closer to the actual wheel for engagement and/or shift switches with your thumb if you ever plan to run those.

    If those are aluminum I would say no to either one. Should be steel or stainless and I agree with Dan on the style. I prefer steel if you need to hang on during a minor mishap. Large mishap have your safety equipment on

    I have the Grant wheel on the left in my Cole, comfortable and looks brand new after seven seasons. If you choose the wheel on the right, you may have a problem finding an adapter to mount the wheel to the standard steering shaft.

    I am not sure what brand I have. My old one was the old school 3 spoke with foam covering that was looking pretty bad and not to mention a few years worth of tech stickers. The picture is the wheel that is going on now that looks like its made out of stainless. I just picked it up off of BOAT104.

    Looks like a Grant. Evenly spaced spokes. Covicos look the same, but are not even.
    I don't know what I don't know because I forgot !!!
