Re: Helm control panel question
Make sure you can see over it
The main issue I've seen with these huge instrument pods is that a lot of people end up fixated on them and forget to look out of the cockpit at where they are going and what's around.
Generally, the stuff is spread all over the place because that's where the previous owners found it easiest to mount rather than necessarily the optimum position. New boats which were designed from the outset with integrated electronics tend to be more organised, where as your typical GOB had basic mechanical instruments mounted on the bulkhead and then went from there over the years.
