The new folding wheel arrived over the winter and the self imposed deal was that the wheel couldn’t be installed until the bottom job was done.
Now that the bottom is done and the boat is finally in the water, the new wheel got installed. As with anything modified, there’s always a gotcha, and this one is that the Edson lock-nut doesn’t sit up flush to the face of the wheel hub, and there’s a space. So I made a small insert to fill the space, decorative only, and powder coated it.
I’ll get a couple of pictures when it’s installed.
