Mine three... errr two.... errrr TOO!

One comfortable, broad teak step from rear deck to sun deck, one teak step from sundeck to bridge. Each surrounded w/ handrails.

MOF... Our Tolly has 130' SS top railing / 65 SS stanchions / many feet SS ladder/step banisters / and 16' SS grab rail alongside the bridge... not to mention some 50' of taught-pulled, white poly coated SS safety wire half way down to deck under top rails along boat sides...

Gee, my skin would dry up in no time being continuously, tumultuously exposed to the wind. But an occasional step outside is fine. (Some people look old for their age because they mistreat their skin. I try to minimize exposure after having been "cooked/radiated" over the years from outdoor adventures.)

You do have "wonderful" looking skin, Mark. And for a guy who's very close to 80, you look so young!

Mark is like an orchid that must be kept in the shade and misted every once in a while.

I can't imagine boating in Florida without an outside helm station or fly bridge. How else could I enjoy the beautiful weather? I also prefer the visibility--especially while docking.

I have a helm station with steering/controls and a chair mounted on the engine box. I can't remember the last time I took the helm from inside.

Here is a picture of the set-up (older photo before I took delivery): IMG_0996 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Cool. A Vashon made it all the way to Florida. I almost bought one when I lived in Washington State.

Stalker question: Is the other boat "At Last" a Hercules?

Looks like the same one that was tempting me in the California Bay Area for a while.

Sherpa is a great boat.

I prefer to dock and exit from the flying-bridge mainly because I can see so much more clearly. Had I tried to back in from the pilothouse last time I would have taken off one of the VHF antenna's that was lowered but almost caught on the dock roofing supports.

I do like the view from above as well although my view is not like yours on the Luhrs if it was the admiral would have me for lunch.....or at least I would be digging real deep on an explanation that tried to make sense ....

Thanks--the Vashon does turn heads here in Florida. The original 18HP Perkins was replaced with a 29HP MD2030 Volvo Penta. "At Last" is a 26' Outer Reef "tug" built in the early 80s. Dad had a fly bridge installed in lieu of the faux smoke stack; it was a great decision on his part. I came across At Last several years ago but she was in sad shape--almost bought it to restore. You still see them around once in a while.
