I know Isotta makes them for both cars and boats. But is there a difference between the car and boat models?
The timing of your question is hilarious as to me.
At the Miami show a young guy, sales rep for a steering wheel manufacturer got into a conversation with my boss, Paul, who is an engineer as was the young steering wheel rep.
These guys went on for maybe twenty minutes re a steering wheel.
I listened now and then and finially said:
"How in the Good Lords name can you guys go on for twenty minutes talking about a freak'n steering wheel"?
Fact is, they could.
Gaskets that hold up better to moisture, that kind of thing.
The usually referred to "Suicide Knob", and whatever it spins on vs moisture.
Yep, you bet there's not only a differance as to automotive vs marine but varying quality of marine vs marine.
It was interesting listening to two guys that could talk to each other this gasket vs that gasket as to a steering wheel and actually be totally absorbed in the conversation.
