A stainless steel destroyer wheel is low maintenance and looks good on almost any boat. Schmitt & Ongaro Marine’s Destroyer Wheel is available in nine sizes from 11 to 30 inches. The standard black center cap can be replaced with a chrome-plated version and a 3/4-inch tapered shaft makes it compatible with most steering setups. Some sizes are available with a polyurethane rim or control knob.
