280 Chris Craft Catalina, the VHF was an afterthought. Though not a particular good one.

I'am back home till spring and the boat is 250 miles away, this is the only pic that is close to the lower helm and it's not much. And I have none of the flybridge.

The slower you go, the more time for life's luxuries. My last boat cruised at 28 knots. Try eating breakfast and keeping a lookout at that speed!

It's not as fancy as most of yours, but it's mine!
I'll have a nice woody pilothouse someday...

Here are picture of ours. In the pilothouse we are replacing the Gray Helm face with Matte Black and adding a iPad dock in addition to the MFDs this winter.

Beautiful boat and beautiful helm. I love those GH47's. Out of curiosity, how did you get in to Indiana or do you keep it in Florida?

Before & After photos of my upper helm. I ditched the original analogue Cummins gauges x 2 and replaced with a single small digital monitor (from Chetco), which freed up a lot of real estate. Then had local shipwrights built a mounting module to support a 15" monitor, the Chetco panel, a/p control. etc.

Before & After of my lower helm. Again replaced acres of Cummins analogue gauges with Chetco digital panel; installed a Furuno NN3D 12" MFD front & centre; and replaced original switches with Carling types. Not shown in the Before photos, I had small chartplotter and radar screens mounted off-centre to port previously....that space is also now freed up.

Looks nice - Can you still see bow sprit nose and close-to-water in center of venture window while seated on bridge?

I'm a bit embarrassed to post this after some of the stunning helms pictured. But, Hey, you've got to start (or End) somewhere. This little 28 is gonna fit our needs just perfectly at this stage in life..

I'll detail it out once we settle on it later this week..

Ha ha! Yes, a nice bonus, especially on a boat this size. Did the sea trial Monday and it worked swimmingly!. Should make the boat handling that much simpler....:-)

Given the cost to retrofit, I consider this a BIG bonus!
From the haul-out on Monday:

I like it, have used it while underway and while anchored without any problems. I've been waked and didn't loose the signal, I'am sure if I took a large wake on the beam it would be lost momentarily, a tows wake while anchored didn't cause any problem. I like the price and the fact that I can pay DirecTv $5.00 for another receiver and keep it on the boat. The set up is easy make sure it's plumb, 12v for power and the control is on a flat 6 conductor telephone type cable. You find the satellite the 1st time, set the elevation (there is a website for this) point the dish in the general direction and lock it to the shaft. Then use the control to bump the rotation left or right till you have the best signal, push 2 buttons on the control simultaneously and it's set. After that all you have to do is power it on and push the find button and it will find and follow the satellite. On a fast boat making quick sharp maneuvers it may not react fast enough but I've never had that problem, it stayed on the satellite thru all the maneuvering into the marina and backing into the slip until it was blocked by the roof. During the set up I slid the boat out of the slip far enough to acquire the signal and snugged up the dock lines so the boat wasn't getting moved by the waves or what current may of bothered it. This way I was able to get a signal in the high 90% range, I reset the elevation again at this time to maximize the signal. If I remember the directions correctly every 60 miles that you move north or south the elevation needs to be adjusted. I had to do this last year and all it takes is to it the find button and loosen the lock bolt and raise or lower the dish to maximize the signal, took me 10 minutes or so by myself with help (someone watching the screen) would of been maybe 5 minutes.
