I swap my fix 32" steering wheel for the Lewmar Folding 36" and love it. With this 36" folding wheel, I increase my steering wheel diameter hence allowing me to sit and lean on side of cockpit coaming and yet able to hold the steering when before I cannot. And when folded, its easier to walk around the steering/cockpit. Its very easy to install, just remove the old wheel and put in the new. If you have Raymarine autopilot wheel, the folder comes with 6 spokes so may need to drill new mount holds on the wheel drive (easy to do anyway). Bought mine through Hunter Marine (comes suitable for tapered mount). You can get the wheel with dual mount type (taper and straight shaft hub) from chandler.
