RE: New Helm Chair for Old School

Hmmmmmm - Mark that comment has a familiar feel of deja vu to it, but since you don't state whose interiors seem to bother you, I will just ask you what is wrong with a boater being proud of their vessel and wanting to make it like a home? I know that before I generalized about other peoples boats, I would find out if they are "in fact" dock queens, or, no matter how much "stuff" they have in them, that they may be quite prepared for heavy conditions. Personally, there are two ways I like to comment about other peoples boats - one is to compliment them, and two, simply not say anything at all. In reality, the only boat I even have a right to comment on is my own.

Giving a bit more thought to your comment though, just what is wrong if someone does decide to be a dock queen? At least they are living the life they want, and I am quite sure they are not bothering anyone else by choosing to live that way.

Bravo! *I am sure Mark didn't mean anything by his comments but love your perspective on dock queen vs. not, etc.

RE: New Helm Chair for Old School

We thought about bolting proper helm chairs to the floor, but realized that since our master stateroom is directly below the raised pilothouse, there is a large safety hatch in the floor right where the helm chair would be. *Instead we have lightweight foldling bar stools, which have worked quite well for us - *even in rougher weather!
