Great looking wheel - but no details on the Hypro website. If anyone has any luck sourcing one I'd be interested to hear where from - thanks

They catalogue it as an "equidistant steering wheel", model no: 71, part no: HM3743 for the polished spokes/carbon, or part no: HM3472 for the blackspokes/carbon. rrp is around 105 plus the dreaded.

Here is a picture of the wheel chosen, and a "before" picture of the dash.

It must be one heck of a hull. 75mph is 65knts, I'm getting just under 50knts from a 7m boat with only 50hp less with an Etec which is a lighter 2st. Admittedly, I'm not propped for out and out top end

A friend of mine has just taken delivery of a Vipermax/200 Etec. After driving it around the islands it is truly a fantastic sea keeping rib. It was very stable at speed and very comfortable to drive. The Cougar really is more of a "race style" rib.

It might need a bit more than 'style' to achieve an extra 15knts.
