Mhinch - Did you just spray Fluid Film behind the wheel or did you pull the wheel? I also have a 222 Fisherman and the wheel squeaks somewhat when turning. Thanks for your input.Go get yourself some Fluid Film from Lowe's Home Improvement, should be $9 or so a can. Use it on this and read up on it.....it's the same exact thing as woody wax for 1/4 the cost.
My wheel did the same thing and I had to clearance the steering shaft as it was fouling against the plastic cover. This on a 222 Fisherman .
Good luck and please report back.
I’d use some marine grease maybe? The squeaking would drive me nuts too. good luck with itI removed the wheel when I couldn’t take it any more. The squeak was like fingernails on the chaulk board and when idling or even trolling it was maddening.
I used a small Dremel tool with a burr bit and ground off some of the plastic facia piece.
