Your own wheel?
 
Just wondering if anybody has ever thought about or built their own pirate ship steering wheel like this?

are you an amputee? how would you steer with legs in the way? cant you just put a suction cup compass on windshield and a pirate flag on antenna and call it a day?:flipoff:

My uncle had one in his van... Of course, that was 1970 something. He had orange shag carpet and dark plywood paneling too.:D

i don't think that would be possible. the wheel would have to be really small in order to accommodate the the handle thingies. if you really want to you might be able to cut off the bottom 'handles" but that might ruin the structural integrity of the wheel.

Why would you want to build one, there a dime-a-dozen down here in florida. I know of a boat ware house that has hundreds of them. In all kinds of conditions. The last time i looked i believe he was asking 35-65 each.

Take that over to Pirate4x4.com and see what they think. :D

Not one actual size just one that would be like the size of your steering wheel now
