Ullman recommend offsetting the wheel to one side of the centre line of the seat, so that with one hand on the wheel & the other on the throttle you are sat square on the seat & 90deg to the console. Otherwise you are either twisting/reaching or stood to one side of the seat.

You can not beat setting things up to suit yourself!!....ESPECIALLY when your speccing a new Boat
A few minutes (or as long as it takes!) dry moving seats consul and helm,even SMALL amounts until you find EXACTLY what suits YOU and your driving style,view,comfort,ease of equipment operation ect,ect,...and gives you the best of the ergonomics...will time VERY WELL SPENT!
A lot easier than Glassing in,or fixing Matrix plates into the Deck to find out....if only!
IMO One of the Major advantages of going New!

Pictures of the new Ribeye console here: Southampton Boat Show 2014

It may not appeal to the gaffa tape brigade, but I think it's excellent!

I've got a Ribeye 550 with the rail system and I've moved everything about, I've got the old, old console (sit up and beg) so my offset of my steering wheel is way over there.

Love the new console though, will have to pop and say hi to Ella if she's at the show as I bought my boat from her other half's brother or something like that??? it's mint, done 50 hours

It's my next project... RIB 4 Whisper!!!
