    Does anyone know if the wheel shaft on a 2000 Hunter 410 is straight or tapered?

    2001 - mine is straight

    BTW - a hose clamp on the shaft behind the wheel does a much better job of being a stop than the stupid thing ring comes on the boat, and you can acturally tighten the nut down.

    Good idea with the clamp.
    I had 2 set screws machined on the wheel, stops the tiny play which always loosened the wheel nut.
