I am at the point where I need to install steering and throttle. I have a blank slate and was wondering if there were any tips, hints, or suggestions to make life better/easier/more comfortable. I have a blank-ish slate but not a good picture, you can see it here, http://www.rib.net/forum/f45/zodiac-...tml#post587343
. original setup had helm in the center and diesel throttle on the right. electronics in the box, VHF radio and switch panel on either side of the helm. I wanted to get everything in the electronics box but it's not going to fit I think although I haven't looked again since deciding to go with individual switches instead of a pre-fab panel.
Should I just center the steering wheel or try to move it to one side or another? Only reason I can think to do that is to give a little more space on the future leaning post to a passenger. Also at 300+lbs I tend to balance the boat out nicely
Nothing specific just looking a a blank canvas and scratching my head. Any or all ideas welcome.
