Re: Helm control panel question
Like dem; I'm in the same boat. Starboard, aft lower bulkhead shift and throttle and opposite bulkhead engine indicators. The trans and throttle get in the way, lines get tangled and are subject to being kicked or toe-stubbed. Idiot lites are near useless and IF I hafta shut down, I gotta drop to a knee and find the button.
I plan to add all he gauges I need , the throttle/shift and such to the starboard/aft cabin bulkhead; like the pilots station onna Pilothouse boat. Now just to find the dual control and appropriate meters!
