Snaps. Yeah, more stuff to rust. I'd rather get the shorts with butt pads in them, so my rail seats were upholstered too!

Hello,

Nah. I have sat in both (obviously). The Catalinas sweep back too... just not apparent in the pics. The Catalina is much more comfortable. Higher on the back too.

Hello. Totally agree on the cushions. Most of mine are sitting in the shed never used. Unfortunaely, the ones that are on the boat are where I was over-ruled by the crew and admiral.

One thing I like on my boat, is that the Autohelm control head is on the side, in the coaming, rather than at the wheel. Even when I'm in the cockpit, I'm only behind the wheel when steering. With the control head on the coaming, I can reach it from the seat to make any corrections and still be able to see it.

While snaps do help hold cushions, it doesn't take much to pop them. Mine though have never rusted.

Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

Ever hear of stainless steal?
We have a nice set of very comfortable cockpit cusions which stay nicely in place with stainless snaps.

Well gee...I might learn something if you knuckleheads didn't get off on a tangent...only good from it all is I fell in Love with the girl in the pink scarf!
I like Gui's station, but I only need one wheel...two would confuse me...I'm a "Fair Weather" sailor and don't have to worry about getting tossed out, so still like my original pic best so far.

G needs two wheels so that he has something to feel important about while Fred is driving.

In case one breaks?
no, wait, in case on falls off?
no, wait, in case someone puts a hose down one?
no, wait, in case the tree you are about to hit is on your side, you can switch?
