Lightbulb Replacment CHB Dash Panels

I run a small side business building replacement dash panels, placards and plates and have literally done thousands now for everything from Bayliners, Searays, Maxums, Carver and many others. I stay pretty busy and realize that I never got around to making new panels for my own old trawler. I have a 1980 CHB Europa.

Anyhow; I've finally made the time to take mine off and digitize them. They are a nice burlwood finish that is vacuum laminated onto an aluminum substrate that helps assure everything is on the same ground plane. This helps with some of the odd gauge problems we all have. They are CNC machined and are drop-in replacements for an OEM dash panel set. They can be swapped out in about 30 minutes each

Anyhow... here's a couple of pics. Let me know if you're interested in one for your old gal. ($80)

Here are the new panels:



Here was my original. (yikes)



And the final install. Still need new gauges, but that's down the road for now.

Of course, half my flybridge instruments are still dead.

Without the bimini they've been in the weather now for 33+ years.
