Lewmar Wheel Brake

The Lewmar steering systems fitted to the Sun Odyssey 36i (and probably several other Jeanneau models) are not supplied with a wheel brake, but as discovered by Jeanneau Owners on this forum thread this can be retro-fitted, either with a Lewar part (at around £55) or by simply modifying a stainless steel bolt.


Sitara finalised the project by welding a washer to the underside of the bolt head then attaching a smart wooden knob laminated out of some scrap hardwood.

If you don't want to make your own, the details of the Lewmar parts are below:
