How to removed dinghy steering wheel?

We have a center console Rendova. It has a five spoke, stainless steel steering wheel. The davit cable caught the back of the wheel when lifting it recently and popped three of the five spoke out of their holes. It appears they were originally spot-welded in.

I managed to manhandle one of the spikes back in place but the other two are being stubborn. Either the wheel needs to be replaced or removed and taken to a machine shop.

I have removed the center nut. The wheel will not just slide off. What do I need to do to remove it? It looks like a Woodruff key on one side. Steering wheel puller? Any advice appreciated.

John & Deb,

Yes, you need a puller. Such as

Some auto part stores do loan or rent these. Good luck.
