I've got to finish of the cupboard in the bottom, add 30mm to the side panels to make it 50mm thick and then I can epoxy and glass tape it up before fairing and sanding etc etc etc.

The reason for the cut out in the back is so it will hook over and sit on top of the toilet wall and ceiling.

Hendo VERY nice mate!!!

What are you installing gauge and electronics wise?

Btw I would offset the wheel so at least one half of your gauges/electronics aren't blocked also I would imagine having the wheel closer to the throttles would help when in close quarters so you can peep your head out the side window and still have control of the boat. Just my .02.

Cheers mate.
I've got Faria Tacho, oil press, water temp, fuel lvl, batt gauges.

I don't have a GPS chart-plotter or a fish finder yet but am looking at the 2 of the Lowrance HDS-12's. Have you got any suggestions?

In the bottom panel, I will have the CD player, the steering wheel and a UHF and HF radios. Then the next panel will have the condra switches. The next panel wil have the 2 HDS-12's or similar, the next panel will house the gauges, the next panel will be the top that will house compass and maybe somewhere to put my beers

She's a bit bare ATM as I don't have much in way of electronic toys yet but should fill out once I put everything in. Click image for larger version

Personally I'd go off center but that just me. Jen and I have already decided our next boat will have a double helm seat or side by side chairs, we do everything together equally when it comes to boating.

If check out Garmin, 840xs, and the 1040xs. We're putting in a 840xs on the FB this week. Not a super fan of Lowrance.

Ok I'll have a look at the Garmins. How come you're off Lowrance? I've only ever owned a HDS-5 and was ok in the go fast I suppose. Kind of a generic std one. I want one that is more in depth and specialised.

I probably sounds silly but I want the cursor on the chartplotter to have a line that shows direction instead of a flashing dot of the actual location.

Saw it on wicked tuna but couldn't see what brand it was

The jury is still out on whether or not the wheel should be centred or to the right.

What's ur thoughts Craigo?

Matt, is your engine right or left rotation? If rotating so when in reverse the boat will back to starboard, the helm located on the starboard side will give you good sight and control when docking. That is my preferred set up. Of course with a center line helm either way works.

Ah I see what you mean, I'll have to check and see later today when I'm at the boat.

I just don't like API in the lowrances, counter intuitive IMO.

Mate what's the advantage of have two identical units side by side like this? Is it so one is a chart plotter and one as a fish finder?

She a Lefty mate. The helm was always going to be on the stbd side of AXE. I was more so going to push the steering wheel to the right of the helm itself opening up the double helm seating to enable Flic to sit up front with me. If the wheel was in the middle I'd be semi leaning over Flic to steer. If I push the wheel to the right, I will be sitting with my princess and will have the wheel into the of me too Click image for larger version

Basically you can have two seprate things being displayed at once wheter it be the fishfinder, chart, radar, and many other things. Plus you have redundancy.

Ok cool. I like that 840XS/1040XS. They are a sexy unit! Thanks for giving me the heads up on those units.

Our main setup is:
PH- Simrad RA53 standalone 6kw radar w/4 foot open array.
Simrad GB-40( Not super fond of it) with Broadband Radar.
VEI Nav comp running an early version of Windows XP with Nobletec Adimral
^ Soon to be replaced.
Garmin 741xs ( Main plotter)

Flybridge-
Northstar 6000i (Being replaced this week w/ a Garmin 840xs)
Garmin 741xs


I really love the Garmin's they're great simple intuitive units, i also like their charts although they're proprietary. I would check out the Bluechart App for the Ipad and check the chart coverage for your area. Mine was about $30 USD and it gives you an idea of what their charts are like. ( Basically the same thing)

If I had pick another i would take a close look at Furuno and their MFD series they look promising. Also there're ability to seamlessly interface with MaxSea (PC Chart-plotting program).

Garmin does have a line extending from the "boat" forward, showing you exactly what you are about to hit....

Here's some pics. It allows you to choose how long you want the line and also whether you want it to be SOG or COG.

Ah yep. Lovely. Thanks for that. How come you're showing other boats in red? Is that the radar function?
