The dash now looks like a wood laminate dash & has done 3 seasons in an open cockpit & looks realy good obviously there are hundreds of laminate designs so doesn't have to be wood
Very good finish

Well spotted boat nomad!
That is exactly the same boat I'm guessing a brochure shot? We imported ours as a bank repo from the states & the previous owner had sold the 8.1l 420hp petrol engines & robed the navigation gear as he obviously knew the repo men were on their way
The dash panels were missing & I remade them as close as I could but if you look closely ours are wood grained & the origional are burl finish & we have Garmin instruments & faria gauges coupled to the yanmar 6lp's we fitted
It doesn't do the 52 mph it did with the petrols in but ill live with the 36kts the diesels give
You can get carbon look formica too if that's what you want but I wanted as close to origional as I could get
Don't get the pipe reference though has someone been smoking something they shouldn't?
