Re: Helm control panel question

Oh you can do it in wood.
I seriously considered it. My boat is a center cockpit so with the enclosure left on the wood is protected.
Previous owners aside of course. I just got the boat in March.

I'm with you and being able to see - and therefore know what is going on. My Yanmar 44 came with just dummy alarms - no gauges.
The idea that you should just go blindly along until the engine (for example) overheats and THEN worry about it is ridiculous. I want to know before I break it.
