Just bought a ‘98 cd22. For some reason it came with a “new” stainless steel steering wheel.. Seems like most of the boats I’ve seen have black wheels.
Is the black wheel a “dory” thing.? If so, I want one.

I'm not sure it is a "C-Dory thing", but for me, it is more comfortable as it provides a bit better grip, and isn't cold to the touch. Bigger ships, and lots of bigger yachts have stainless steel wheels. Many, too, have wooden ones.
Some things are "C-Dory", the colored shear strip and cabin top trim, the Vests with the C-Dory patch, the crazy wave -- lights blink and horn blows -- when you see one coming down the road, or understanding what CBGT means. Often times, there is a "C" significant in the boat name. I think your wheel should be what ever you like that turns your boat.
