steering wheel

Hi All - Does anybody know how to tighten the spokes of a wood wheel in the lower helm of a 1989 42 Classic?

I once masked it well and pushed catalyzed resin into the gap on a wood wheel.

I do not think they were made to be tightened, if loose they shrunk, need filler as suggested.
You only need one working engine.
That is why I have two.

On my Marine Trader there are wood screws facing forward on each spoke on the hub. I use a 90 degree screwdriver to give them a 1/4 turn every year or so. They tighten up nice.
