Nice try!!! But I don't think that's the same boat not even the same garage. If it is you need to take the (few) out of changes. Out of respect I do have to say Both panels on each boat blow away my stock dash on my formula.

Wrong on both counts.. My shop is 8200 sq. ft. with 4 overhead doors the first pic is front of shop the second is in the back.The boat was painted over the winter by TAOD and windsheild replaced with windscreen. Here is a pic with the steering done before dash work.

Yes Mcleod designed them we made some design changes and narrowed the bases to fit the Donzi floor, We are also replacing the up and down dovetails to linear bearings after the AOTH meet this coming weekend at Cumberland. We plan on making these in different size bases for use in all sit down style boats. The cushions and backrests will be ready tomorrow and I will post more pic's before we put them in the boat.

donzi looks sweet, I think you need some sick handles like these, they would look sweet on that boat.
