Jim, I'm going with the original baby blue color, I forget the actual name of it but I matched the color from the adds so it might be a little bit off. I'm okay with that though
Bob, I didn't need to get new one because these are luckily in good shape for their age.
Brian, I took this shifter mount off the 61-62 Aristocraft boat I have which was the blue you've picked out. Here is a pic of that blue for you. I know it's late, but I haven't checked out this thread in a while.
I appreciate your hard work and post's regarding the restoration of your wheel. I have a 1958 Yellow Jacket which has the same Attwood Steering wheel. However the center cap is missing. Do you have any suggestions on where I might obtain a replacement center cap to compliment my wheel restoration?
Do you know exactly what year your wheel is? Its very similar to mine but mine has a metalflake paint on it. Mine came as original equipment on a '60 Thompson so I'm guessing it is a 1960, or maybe a '59 from the dealer's stock.
Verne, not too sure what year it is. I actually got it on ebay cause I liked the look of it and it was around the same era as the boat. It was a pale yellow and off white when i got it which was the original color
