Default New dash layout

Looks pretty bad to me. I don't like the layout AT ALL. Very scattered. No flow to the lines whatsoever.

The original looks much, much better to me.

The monster gauges overwhelm it a bit. No need for them unless you have poor vision. But I think in spite of that, it still looks pretty cool for a windshield...

Nice windshield but the dash is cluttered as $hit. Looks like the guages were an after thought

I don't mind the styling at all. However the paint lines should have passed through the remote panel. It also would have helped if it was properly aligned. Could be the camera, it looks like it's tipped slightly.

I like the new style except for the extra 6 gauges in the center...I don't think that boat needs that many anyway.

Perhaps should be a new thread but did anyone see the new setup on the 32 Innovator? And you think the new Dominator gauge package is weird! The Innovator has a flip up dash and the foot rests for the front bolsters slide/flip behind and that is how you access the cuddy below!! Kind of a neat idea but very different! And by the way....the 32 Innovator is not at the Chicago show....not quite ready apparently?!

I think the gauge panels would look better with a carbon fiber in an accent color from the scheme.

Kind of makes me itch to look at it...


If they wrapped the plastic gauge panels in vinyl with inserts to match the paint scheme, I'd not be as itchy..

I like the gauges that they used but the lay out would seem a little off. I agree with everyone on the paint but why would you want the hour meters right there for all to see. Plus the depth gauge should be some where close to the wheel for easy viewing. I would also tend to think that the compass looks kinda funny there too because it seems to break up the lines. I also would have to sit in the boat and see how it would work. The tachs and gauges right above the wheel look good but a step design might have worked better.
