Hello, New to the forum....My boat steering wheel is coated with a rubber material that was degrading from the sun. I decided to wrap it with paracord.....nothing fancy just a tight wrap with knots by the steering knob. It took a long time to run the long length of the cord through the wheel and through and through....then ran out of cord! LOL I have since used a blue camo color that turned out great and provides good grip even with fish slime hands!has anyone wrapped their steering wheel? i really want to but i cant figure out exactly how to do it. could anyone shed some light on this?
thanks in advance
Marn,Okay, so this is going to come out awesome.
Pulled the wheel when I got home. Grabbed the longest not rolled up piece of paracord I had, which turned out to be bright purple, and gave it a test. I wanted to see if it would feel good in the hand before wasting all my time doing it as the real thing.
I was concerned with the loops being on the "top and bottom" of the wheel, where your hand would rest, and being too agressive. I pulled the top strand a bit tighter to keep the loops more on the "front" of the wheel. Feels GREAT in the hand. realized however when tied like this, it'll use alot more of the outside color. Thats also a good thing, because the outside color will be the dark color, which will be less susceptible to getting dirty.
on the back the back sideof the knot slides nicely into the finger grooves. I'll probably make things more even when ido it for real, this was just a 5 minute test.
That looks sweet dude. I was wondering if the cobra would be comfortable for sustained gripping, glad to hear it is!
