Here is something you might think of a Handhold for the helm. To gve you something steady to hang on to in bumpy weather.

Here is our dash before- the VHF is stashed behind the pillar to the right.

Work in progress, and playing with the finish. We just finished the galley in cork, and I think the cork works well here, too.

We'll be putting the Raymarine in the new dash, as well as the VHF, autopilot head, and either an iMac or a computer monitor. More as we get it completed......

That's what I think I'll end up doing - due to the amount of monitors I'll have, I'll ask my wife to build a panel that will allow more flat area above the wheel. Thank you. Tonto.

Good play Peter! Your dash has mix of "old salt" wheel and 21st Century Zen! Cool!

A very nicely done layout. Having the piloting info just below eye level makes it so easy. After all they don't make bifocals in the lower half for nothing.

I like it.

Hey, Hey - Don! Get with the 21st Century program! "Progressives", please, not bifocals... like "our" gramps wore! LOL

We've 2wo grand kids and their friend coming to cook din-din tonight for "Nonnie" and me, "Pop Art" to some "Pop Pop" to others! This kid batch ranges from 10 to 13 yrs (we’ve 3ree other grands that are pre birth, 2 yrs and 7 yrs).

Just remember what we thought of our grandparents while tech-race was barely muddling along in mid 20th Century. Then think what these tech savvy kids see in (of) us. Scary! But, Loads O' Fun!!

One BIG lesson we try to provide at each get together is "vocabulary". With the compressed communication venues of today - I find that words with more than about 7ven letters are no longer used by youngsters. 13teen yr old Cooper has suddenly become quite interested in learning more about words and reading – he and I have good lessons together. Those younger could care less... yet!

Visualize:

- Vocabulary becomes not needed beyond a few hundred words – usually spoken/entered in counts of five or less
- Reading is no longer required because video shows all
- Math – who needs that? “Cloud” programs answer any question
- Parallel parking – done by car itself... heck, just push in co-ords and vehicle drives itself too
- Thinking – WHY bother?? Implanted chips in body and brain have all info loaded and ready to use – with a monthly download and reboot that is mandated – by Da GOV!

1931 Aldous Huxley wrote his insightful “Brave New World”... as I see this unfolding; it seems today’s book title could be: “Mental World Control”... “Cloud” video coming soon to everyone’s implanted chip!

I am pleased to have been birthed in mid 20th Century! Many of that (our) age group seem to be able to see and understand times before us, current times upon us, and we can often visualize future possibilities. Whereas it appears too many of those born past approximate year 1990 have little or no care to study or learn from history. Their concepts too often dwell only upon what’s brand new today and, then throw that silly toy away, for what is promised as soon being brand new tomorrow. Each sequence further leading to less and less need for usage of “thinking”.

The developed world is slowly but surely becoming mindlessly hypnotized! I.e. “Mental Evacuation” is being accomplished.

Will be interesting to see where civilization travels during next couple to few decades... One of my favorite quotes: “When You Least Expect It – Expect It!

Thanks. We were toying with the cork idea, but went with the pleather instead- it's easy to work with, and came out very nice. Some cables have to be rerouted and/or lengthened, but that's pretty easy.

I wouldn't have thought about leather or pleather as a covering. Looks pretty nice. Nicer than the black plastic which is so common.

I am planning on doing the same thing. Like the idea of everything in a central location. However, what did you do with the compass?
