I would personally want to have all the gauges in front of me, not having to look at the other side of the boat to check gauges. Just my opinion.

Robert,
When I'm running hard I like the idea of a qualified pasenger helping me monitor the guages.

Actually one of the best layouts I have seen for a dash is on this Commanche 36.

Also, what year Cigarette and What year Apache? I agree that the Apache could stand a cosmetic upgrade but the layout is more functional.

I agree that when running hard having some help keeping an eye on the critical stuff. It is alot easier to place the gauges for two people to monitor when you have a center-steer boat. Mine was set up for a throttle person on the left, center steer, nav/fuel management on right. The throttle person also helps me monitor the gauges and read the water. I was/am not trying to put anyones boat or dash down, just giving my $0.02 worth. And hey with the cockpit like your boat, you get all the chicks , remember Savannah!

Brad, BTW, are ya'll going to Savannah for St. Patty's day?

Personally I like it when the gauges are grouped in sets of two for each engine.....ie: 2 knock meters then 2 oil pressure then 2 fuel pressure then 2 water pressure.....it's easier for me too read when you have to glance at groups instead of cluster arrangments.......Sean

The door is electric and it closes by two switches are with remote. I have had more fun opening the cabin door and engine hatch remotely for people who are looking at the boat and don't know I'm around.
