Aww..... Everybody knows he's just jealous of CD's 2 wheels on his c400
It seems only TB and a few others besides myself know the proper placement of 2 wheels is one out in the sun and another inside protected from everything.... silly people...

USCG...getting back to the original question...I had an Irwin with a similar pedestal and we mounted the chartplotter/radar on a swivel arm off the pedestal which allowed me to view it from wherever I wanted to sit. Worked well so I did the same on my Tayana.


Oh yeah...I love my cushions and they don't slide anywhere. Mesh bottoms on teak seating provide the friction necessary. I like strtching out on passage and letting OTTO do the work while I monitor the instruments and keep a lazy watch..tough to do that comfortably on fiberglass!

This is Why you don't have a hole at the back of the boat.


You just don't know what might use the back door if is left open, or left off all together.

Easier access to the BBQ grills!

PS THought we already answered your question(s). What else can we help you with before we got off topic again!!!! I told you why I did not like it and don't always plan on fair weather! Many of the CC's have that same design. I think Cam's is a little deeper as I recall. I know the Taswells are. When you are at dock you will want to lean back with support on your back.

You can by a NavPod for the auto that swivels. Mine does. It is a mistake not to get autopilot. Trust me. A halyard will get snagged or something that will require you to walk forward. An accidental jibe at that point could be lethal.

Of course, you can have both: I have a helm in the pilothouse and a small "footbath" aft deck wheel for active outdoor sailing. We spend most of the time under sail outside. The missing piece is a throttle/shifter on the outside binnacle, from where I would much prefer to dock than from the pilothouse due to visibility issues.

I love having cambered, flush decks as they shed water excellently.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Now leaning back at the dock is definetly a concern. Getting underway is merely a means to change the scenery then lean back somemore. I get it about otto and suppose it's a necessary evil... (kidding). Well, someday I'll let you all know what kind of cpockpit I end up with.

Really like the pictures of the helm instrument displays. Just got a Morgan 30 OI and want to mount my autohelm display and Garmine 525 but have only been able to find some Navpods that may work but I have a lot of questions. Never thought about actually mounting the chartplotter on the side of the pedestal...very interesting. Who else makes display cases?

Joe, check out Online Machine Shop - Instant Pricing.

They're a full machine shop and they let you download and install CAD software onto your PC, then spec materials and machines and price out your job and upload it to them for production.

It would be fairly simple to make up a custom instrument panel, or pod, out of plexi or teak or metal and have it sent back to you for assembly. Not always as cheap as you might want, and the CAD software is basic, but it can do a LOT of custom jobs for a boat, and their machinists can follow instructions to do whatever the software doesn't seem able to do. Even if you spec'd a front panel, and then had a local plastics shop bend up a matching back/case for it, this could be a good way to go for real custom fits.
