what are you looking to plant?

gotta get some updating in here . . . . its 3 a.m. . . . . i have a few spare minutes lol

after finding some PPI style seats to copy and building a shifter console it was time to get the saw out (again) and convert the cockpit from traditional split seating to the outside to centered seating against the console.

did some mock up before chopping anything out just to get some direction. I made a new dash top to get some style in there and give a lot of room for gauges.the dash thing on the right was added at some point in its life and for whetever reason was anout six inches further back then the drivers side. . . . . thats gotta go.

after a lot of cutting and trimming i started mocking up panels to find some foot room for the passanger seat as the new cabin access will be from that side. its actually pretty comfy when seated and you dont really have to climb over anything to get seated like in a lot of cats. i have a 36 Nor Tech close by me that i have looked at a couple times and i am loosley using it or referance, this cockpit is every bit of two feet wider and less crowded. had to move the drivers side foot well forward about a half a foot but there is a sh!t ton of room on that side.

at this stage the mock up panels are a bit roughly fit but this allows changes to be made to refine the design. you'll notice at this stage the upper new piece and the face of the old dash are even, this was later changed to a step that looks really good and gave the face some more dimension. Also the top of the console , the angle met the bottom of the dash, this was also moved back to expose a flat area for cop holders, heads up indicators, etc . . .

after pulling all the flatwork off it all gets edge prepped and glassed back together. the area under where the old pass dash was open so the floor was ectended back to the cabin bunkhead. this serves as a bit of a 'hallway" for the new access. There will also be a small storage area just inside the door for fenders and stuff. stitching the pieces together, i also remover the old gauge pod completly and filled it in

at the last minute i decided to move the upper top gauge riser forward to stepmthe dash. makes the dash look lower, cleaner and wider (as if anything on this boat needed to look wider ) . . . and again glassing it all together . . .

Blended the lower section of the dash where it goes under to give a good clean finished look also really
adds to strength and gives it a finished look. Glassed it all together . . . permanent . . . coming out pretty cool and functional with lots of room for gauges and stuff also sitting in it everything is fairly comfortable and within easy reach . . . . actually reminds me of the Star Trek Enterprise
