I have a hanging oil lamp, a gimballed bulkhead oil lamp, a brass clock, a brass bell, a brass barometer, black cherry trim, two sextants and a collapsing telescope my son uses to read off buoy numbers.
But that's "inside" stuff. I hate wood on the outside of boats, unless it's not my boat, if you follow. The pilothouse is getting a tech redo, and the wood and brass helm wheel is attached to hydraulics and electronics. So while the boat looks traditional, it's more like a modern fishing trawler with a lot of navigational gadgets aboard. I keep the "y'arrr...she be like me old sea chest" stuff confined to the saloon.
