This flybridge was added by a previous owner. It had a single bench seat at the controls. We decided to add capacity for guests.
The captain's bench seat awaits the dumpster while everything else is removed from the cabin top. A new layer of plywood will be needed to support the added seating.
The cabin top is cleared and new plywood added to increase structural strength for additional seating weight.
The old control panel was made from a sheet of unfinished aluminum,so it acted as a mirror on sunny days. We decided to replace it with a flat black panel to help reduce the glare.
The mast was hinged to permit lowering when entering a covered mooring slip. Two air shocks slow the mast's descent and act as a stop at its lowest position.
Matte black surface reduces reflection. SIMRAD Navstation and Fuel Flow Meters are added to starboard.
These captain's chairs were a huge improvement over the original bench seat. The matte black control panel is in and the Simrad Navstation monitor is well located.
