It is an area some boats have forward of the pilothouse windows protected by a short wall.
(at least, that's my understanding)
Never saw one with a helm before.

Saw this boat last week in Dana Point, California. It is a fully restored 1958 Wheeler.

Wheeler were beautiful boats. I was aboard plenty while in NY during 50's 60's. Haven't seen but two in Nor Cal. One a virtual wreck and the other in good condition. That one looks to be really finely kept.

I remember the Wheelers of the 50's. They were frequently in Motor Boating magazine. My father bought me a subscription in 1950. The Wheelers seemed perfect in every image.

Gaston: Sure looks like a Benford designed Florida Bay Coaster, or at least built off his plans.

Saw this beauty at the docks on Lake Union during the boat show in Seattle. Anyone know the history of it?
