Thanks, I located the radar so that in the future I will add another Garmin 4212 that will support a HD radar. When I open the panel up for it, they will be balanced. At that time I will probably move the GPI from next to the Garmin radio to the center between the two chart plotters and install a second VHF in its place.

Those Bayliner helm stations remind me of something Mr. Sulu would feel comfortable sitting at. It's kinda wonderful.

I agree, I love my PH. On our 3218 rarely drove from the inside station. On the 4588 I rarely drive from the bridge. It is so comfortable to operate from the PH even in close quarters.

Current helm... Updates a commin.. ;) Had a question...

Updating my older RM to new Garmin. Puzzled about what substrate/panel to use to cover the existing hole while mounting the new MFD's. Both Garmin MFD;s will fit between the outside guages so I will only have to remove the RM plotters, cover the holes and install the new displays.

I recently finished the restoration of my helm. All new gauges and bezel I made. It's pretty basic, everything works.

I would use a panel of black Starboard with rounded corners. Keep the borders around the instruments smallish and the Starboard will hardly be noticeable.

Suggestion: for those of you with outside helm stations and Garmin-type displays, I'd suggest you write on the inside of the cover the name of your boat.

I was walking up a dock one day after a lot of wind the previous day. I spotted a cover on the dock (upwind -- no idea how that happened!) and the name of the sailboat was on the inside. As the owners were away I opened their locker for propane and put it on top of the tank.

At some point they would find it safe and sound. Label yours and you just might get it back some day.
