Verrrry pretty! Nice touch with those dual flanking beer holders. Cool, racy looking steering wheel. Think it has ample circumference... for standing and/or seating steering comfort?

Nice and sturdy grab rails.

Slightly off topic, but I just saw a picture of a huntsman spider the size of a ŁĄ€%!^@ frisbee. After pooping my pants and throwing my laptop across the room, I decided that I will never go to Australia. Ever.

Carry on.

That is some work of art there on the Helm! Can't wait to see the hand carved helm chair to go with it.

Matt, if you install railings or safety lines on stanchions, maybe only forward of the cockpit, they will interfere with butt parking anyway.
As I`m in the process of refinishing my teak cappings, a reminder that you will be doing that too, to keep them looking good. I`m stuck with it as an annual job, fortunately I don`t have to get back to green teak every year, I use Deks Olje, never looks as good as varnish, but good enough for an older boat.

I love the helm station. It looks great. I am, however, concerned with the water tightness of the starboard door shown in the picture.

Hi Bruce.
I won't be running oiled or varnished cap rails mate. They'll be hidden under glass tape and epoxy filler topped off with white paint and nonslip tread. Would look nice with the clear gloss on the Karri but I've decided not to go down that route.
