...a fair ways back under the steps so the handles haven't been a problem.

There is a cut-out on the side where...




...you sit at the Nav. Station to get to the switches and we used that after the storage unit went in and while we were on the boat last spring/summer.

When we return to the boat all of those circuits will go to a new switch panel by the Nav. Station with additional circuits. We will leave the old panel but it will be non-functional.
