I'm sure I'm like a lot of people and sometimes remove the wheel
while on mooring
etc to have more room in the cockpit
. I normally wrap the shaft key onto the shaft with some masking tape to keep track of it. But this is a pain in the ass and I'm been thinking of other options and am thinking of just epoxying it onto the shaft. This should keep it from just falling out but if ever do need to remove I'm sure a hammer and punch would just knock it off.
Thoughts and what do you do with your shaft key when taking the wheel
