Livorsi (gaffrig) is pretty cool, but don't actually make anything themselves, just rebadge other peoples products! The other downside is that most of their stuff isn't durable enough for our weather, coatings peel off, anodizing fades very quickly, etc etc!

If you want a steering wheel for hydraulic, you ought to look at the equidistant range from Hypro Marine, most of it is Momo marine or Tazio, excellent products with good aftersales service, and you might get a deal if you buy steering as well!

It'll be a lot cheaper than shipping in from the states.

We get the Seastar steering from them and are currently using a Carbon Fibre look wheel from them - suprisingly it has a soft feel to it - well recomended and with the equidistant spokes it never looks wrong with the creep of hydraulic steering.

This is the one we're using - it was from Hypro and is lasting well! By the way the throttle and gear lever are Gaffrig, and the foot throttle as mentioned before is In control with the optional kit to link it all together.
