RE: The Helm

Yeah guys standard side for Aussie built boats.
But as so many boats are imported and initially built for the US market stbd side steer is probably more the norm.
Port side steering so that when passing on comming vessel with normal protocol red to red easy to give a wave.

Tied the turks head myself and it is looking a bit tired (16 years old) may have to do a new one soon once the back log of current jobs has been cleared

*Looks good to me, too, but they mounted it on the wrong side for your side of the ocean!!* ;-)

What I don't understand is how can you possibly run the helm without all that clutter of charts, coffee cups/drink cans, binocs, sunscreen bottles, hats, and half-eaten sandwiches?* You must have tidied up for the picture.

RE: The Helm

Well, we have owned this boat 5 years now, and have never helmed from the lower station, but you should see the rubbish on the flybridge.

Full of discarded prawns and lobsters,bottles of the finest Oz wines and champagne, half drunk. Girls so lovely you won't believe your eyes, who apply the sunscreen. Balmy weather with a zephyr of a breeze to cool you down..........................and*you call that the wrong*side of the ocean?.

*...not the wrong side of the ocean.* Just 'your' side of the ocean.* But after reading about your flybridge, maybe I should boat more in Oz.* We could arrange a boat swap for a week.* You can come to the California Delta (surfers, blondes in bikinis, beach volleyball with well-endowed players, movie stars lining the shores, medical marijuana) and use my boat for the week, and I'll come to Oz to sample your...ahem... waters.

I promise to clean up well when I leave.

_______________________________________________

Unlike with road vehicles, the position of the helm is more a function of layout of the interior, rather than the side one drives on. Sure under universal rules of the road(sea), one passes port to port wherever one lives, but the helm position is not really relevant to anything other than the fact it is helpful for it to be on the side one docks, especially if you have a helm door next to it as well, and it is even better if the reverse prop-walk is to the same side as the helm. In most vessels that is to starboard, hence the helm to starboard is the favoured side, irrespective of country.

Ahhhhh....you US'ians, your inside shots always look soooo neat and tidy and well-organised. Here, to make you feel even better is what I stare at when out and at the helm.

RE: The Helm

Now that looks more like my boat underway, Peter. Not cluttered, just 'lived in.'

Jennifer, how do you like the leather wheel wrap? I am considering one for my lower helm, which is the only one I use in the cold wx. Did you get it from here? http://www.boatleather.com/

RE: The Helm

From the photos received yesterday it looks like just*the*hydraulic top up should do it then then we will also have operational helms too!* The screens do service for the radar, twin G's,*various cameras and an interphase unit.
