For all of the other aesthetic challenges Bucky may have the Pilothouse is not one of them.

Our helm position is a little crowded, but works fine.

The best feature is that I can also reach throttle and gears from side deck.

The helm seat is removable for day trips.

Here's the flybridge helm on Beachcomber. There's seating for 12 so it's pretty comfortable even with a crowd on board...





Here's the lower helm. I almost never use it because it's so much more fun to drive from above...


Here's the helm from our 2010 Boston Whaler...


and one from our 1981 Boston Whaler that we just bought....

Compact and functional. The seat is a double and on port side there is a copilot station with room for charts and duplicate radio and chart plotter-radar for the Admiral. I have too wheels spoked and destroyer and its a quick change.
