One question... Any particular reason why the helm is mounted on the wrong side? :-)
Seriously though, is it mounted on that side for any particular reason, most folk mount it on the right to use the throttle with the left hand. Are you left handed or is there some other reason that will be worth considering when fitting out my console?
Is it paddle powered? or is the engine one of these stealth versions to match the black hull?

That may be difficult if you look closely, no engine!

I am just curious, I find left hand mounted throttle lever most comfortable with being right handed and, except for odd installations, nearly all the installs I have seen are of this config.
I was just wondering if there was some advantage I hadn't thought of on mounting it differently to the way I was intending.

Extensively debated again more recently here.
