Thanks Mike, the steering wheel is solid Mahogany, is over 20 years old but never installed, unfortunately it will block the view of any gauges installed behind it so I'm going to have to build a gauge box to put on top of the dash, working on that now.

Hey John, I've been watching your build, I thought your OD18 was perfect to begin with but I think you will like the addition of gunwales.

When I get this boat out of the garage I'm going to do a refresh on the OD16 with a center console and new paint, make it a little more user friendly, I'm tired of the tiller, I want an electric start and steering wheel for her, after that I'm looking at the RB16, I've had a couple of old rum runners in the past that I have refurbished, loved them but I think it will be easier to build one using the S&G method.

Have a Happy New Year! :)

Joe H.

3rd coats of varnish on the Bi-fold cabin doors, looking good, I think 1 more coat should do it.

The Mahogany steering wheel I have blocks any chance of putting the gauges on the face of the helm, plus I think they would be tough to see from a standing position so I built this little gauge box, I should be able to put my all my gauges, compass and an auxiliary power supply in it.

Hey John,
It's 2 layers of pine laminated together, coated with epoxy, mahogany stain and 3 or 4 coats of Interlux Schooner Varnish with UV protection.

I'm not sure how I'm going to attach it yet, glue it, lag bolt it, we'll see.

I seen that Fastlane, and when I seen mine on Craigslist I had to have it, same controls too, I was going to go with Teleflex but the Yamaha controls were less expensive.
How do you like the location of your gauges? I'm not sold on my gauge box on the dash just yet.
Nice progress now get back to work
I'd work on it day in and day out if my employer would give me more time off work! :) :)

Joe,

The location of the gauges works just fine for me. I never have a problem seeing them when i need to.
I put that radar and sonar/nav up on top of the dash. That's what i really need to see. Your gauge box does look nice though.
