I make it 14-15cm from the top of the dashboard. Obviously there is about a 2" overlap below that. I reckon if you went 5cm higher it would probably be an improvement, but equally you could do that by going a few lower.

Actually thinking about it, lower it probably better because the edge is currently in the eyeline when sat down which is annoying.

If you're making one with a lighter smoked acrylic then we currently have then we may be interested.

Arghhhh I hate new stuff,, I only work in clear to be honest can not justify the cost of the smoked material,,, feel guilty telling people the cost,,,
You recommend 250mm O/A then?
Think I will do a 250 n 300 see how the feedback goes before I carry on ,,

Nice one Nuge.

I'll have one of those screens for the larger one, if you've got some spare. Full height is fine and I'll cut down to suit, if needed.

Gotchi, silly question but if you spin your steering wheel, is it perfectly round? Not that it'll make any difference to operation, but I just noticed mine's out of true a bit.

I reckon 250mm would be perfect, about 50mm taller than ours. I think 300mm may be slightly aesthetically unbalanced.

I'm a long way from the boat so I couldn't tell you for sure but I think it is perfectly circular..
