Hi Guys, been following you from the beginning of your Utube postings. Really speaking you are both going wrong somewhere. It is getting more and more boring visiting your sites with nothing but problems after Problems from you guys. When are you finally putting that boat of yours so that you are able to post videos of your problems sailing through the plant. That is when it should be more challenging when you fix your problems sailing the Rig. Matter of options.

Put the throttle down low , like other boats on the boat not pedestal , more at the level of the engine , Your compass up there is to close to the electronics and the metal throttle , it won't read correct . Needs to be away from electronics and metal,

I have a picture of a helm I wish I could send that has the steel bar that you cut off welded in (or bent) at about a 20 degree forward angle which would solve your throttle lever issue. The controls are mounted in a rectangular but relatively thin box on the angled metal bar. (I emailed it to you).

In a squall, there is a risk to injure hands/forearms in this configuration (reaching through a spoked wheel).. The controls only need to be within reach & eyesight of the helm. (Possibly left or right). Attempt to get away from a car's traditional POV in a drivers seat. It's looking good. You've came a long way. Can't wait to see you on the journey.

On longer passages you're not behind the wheel because you use the autopilot. It then is very inconvenient to have the instruments in that place. I would reconsider the whole setup.

You eliminated the hold bar on top of the binnacle. That is an important grab bar. When you sail in big waves with the autopilot on, you need a place to grab quickly without grabbing the wheel.

The usual solution is to put the control level on the starboard side of the cockpit vertical wall. You can make an inset box, so the control lever is flush with the cockpit side wall. This will get your cables where you want them. Or you could change the style of lever. Or you could make the box "L" shaped, or you could drop the box lower. You will regret having it block your view when you are seated. Make sure it does not. Also, make sure you have a grab loop on top of the box. You will be surprised how often you reach for it in that area as you can't always grab onto the wheel for security.

I know this is a late comment, but did you consider mounting the throttle and gear lever on the cockpit side near the floor? I see a lot of yachties using their feet on the throttle to free-up their hands for sheets and steering. Also, you won't risk to put your hand thru the spokes of the ship's wheel and risk getting tangled up or bruised as it turns. Just a thought. Can't wait for the next episode. Cheers..!! Grant

Ay... As much as I like these videos, I don't think that it was a great idea to cut the top of the pipe off. Isn't the pipe there to protect the helm in the exact situation you described in 13:43? It's better for a pipe to get a hit then bending the axle of your helm.. 🤔

2 thoughts; Can you mount the throttle upside down? Right now it's not only very tall, it also has the risk of a rope getting caught in it. 2nd, I would recommend that you have like 5cm more clearance between the pannel and the steering wheel. So that someone might be able to use the panels from the side or the front (of the boat) without going though the steering wheel. Also, if you run in to something (a rock or the dock or something like that) and the boat comes to a sudden stop, then the person behind the wheel will fly forward into the wheel and bend it. If it's to tight you might not be able to steer the boat. (I've seen this happen more than once)

891 comments wow , I think the design needs to such that while sailing any controls that need human input are accessable without passing hands through the wheel others that are only displays dont have that issue , also consider sailing in lower light levels with all those displays you probably will be so blinded by the light you will not even see the bow , the displays are designed to be bulkhead fitted so....

Looks to me, that you always have to standup when you’re at the helm. I know on the Catalina 34 that I do sit down half the time, the only thing I have in front of me is the compass, throttle, and transmission. Can’t you move a lot of the equipment on the pedestal down in cockpit.

Eu girava todo o conjunto do acelerador 180 graus, de forma que o cabo saísse por cima, e fizesse uma curva para entrar no cano de descida. O ganho disso é que o eixo do acelerador desceria até a base da caixa de instrumentos. Outra opção também seria o de colocar o conjunto todo deitado na base da caixa de instrumentos. Isso aumentaria o raio da curva do cabo de comando do acelerador.

You need to use an electromechanical drive. A type of gas remote control. Electric handle. And on the throttle there is a linear electric motor. Like boats with Mercury motors. Well, or similar systems. There is no need to lay a cable, only electrical wiring. And connect an electric motor to the cables.

Hello, just my opinion, but I think you are wasting valuable helm space on the motor displays, especially the tachometer. Is there a smaller option for the readout? Having room for.

Perhaps thinking outside the box. You are stuck making every possible attempt to make that relatively small pipe work for the throttle. The way it is installed is great, but it does not work all that well for the throttle. Maybe another pipe, installed like the others - welded with a flange, but out of 3 inch stainless schedule 40 and mount the throttle to a bracket with its own housing. You could make the throttle lower and adjust the cables to fit by cutting them. You have a good TIG welder to work with. Just thoughts.

This "couple of months" refit is slowly becoming a 22 year refit. Don't let perfection be the enemy of good. Get the engine installed and go cruising already. I'm ready to see you sailing soon. You can try to perfect it as you go, but you know it is a boat and you will never reach perfection. BTW, I love the Joplin music.

I am sorry, I can see you are working very hard with the pedestal, but the result so far is all wrong. No helmsman is going to stand behind a wheel for hours. Nobody will. Take that for granted. Then – no matter what you do electronics will be wet sooner or later outside. If you can move them inside you should do so. You are out on the water to enjoy the sailing, the wiew or just the sea. There is no reason to have the engine information topside and in your face. You will soon learn the sound of the propulsion you need, and the alarm will sound if the engine is over heating. I assure you, you will not be standing to stear the boat more than absolutely necessarry. That is inn and out of harbour. As soon as sails are up you will move to the side of the wheel to be able to se the jib or you set the autopilot and move to a more comfortable place. Move the chartplotter forward and on top of the hatch or beside it. There it is out of harms way , and you should have no problem watching the chart from behind the wheel. If not move the plotter as low down on the pidestal as possible. I have used them set on the side of the pidestal and on the end of the cokpit table. But up front by the hatch is far better, because you are going to spend much more time in front of the wheel than behind it. If you have the plotter behind the wheel you have to move from front to rear to check the chart, depth, course, speed etc. Much better for all to have the instruments where all can see them at all time. In very very difficult waters I fetch the Ipad to follow chart details closely from behind the tiller. But I am old and need glasses. Besides, an uncontroled jibe or just some rope will soon entangle the box as it sits now and remove the whole thing. Engine control and everything else. The engine controller is by my experience best sett low down and preferable by your feet portside. Out of the way of ropes etc. You will learn to control the engine with one foot while stearing in no time. Preferable change the leveler to one that you can take away or use a winchandle to control. You should be thinking about simplyfing instead of overbuilding and trusting watertightness. It will not work over time. You think everything is in the right spot, but after a while you will have to move or add something and the leakage begins. Spanish harbours are filled by boaters trying or waiting to fix electronics and expensive equipent they «need». Waste of time and sailing. Trust me, I know this by hard learning. I have had sailboats and other boats for 60 years. Now my instruments are stand alone units, cordless and waterthight. The chartplotter is not cordless, but easily removed. As soon as we find open waters, I move the plotter to the chartable inside. You are heading to become partners in the Spanish harbour club. Start over, for your own good. Talk to someone who actually sail and spend time on the water – not those who stay in the harbour trying to fit a washing maschine or whatever –or even worse, repearing a washing machine - in a sailboat. Total waste of time and money. Best wishes and advice given with the best of intentions. Yours Espen Reiss Mathiesen, Norway. Ps Odd is a common male name in Norway. The name is from the viking age and means spearhead or a sharp point.

The cockpit should be set up in a similar manner as a light aircraft. The throttle engine controls go to the left down on the wall of the left lazaret. The primary navigation instruments go center in the instrument pod with the autopilot center right. The engine panel on the instrument pod may not be necessary but the engine warning light and horn might be helpful. Keep it simple is the rule of design. The compass heading has to be central to your scan. RichardsonDuke/Durham NC

im not sure about the space you might have, but placing the morse control to the side of the cockpit might help. also, the rpm is something you check from time to time, no need, imo, to have it "blasting" in your face, again, if you get this on the side of the cockpit you are simplifying the design. by doing this you gain space for a bigger chartplotter which is the screen you need close to you, when getting into an unknown harbour, at night, dodging a storm; alongside your log, wind electronics, etc.

Looking at Roberta standing beside it, it is very tall.. She will need a ladder to see the compass if its on top and to reach the throttle control :-) Its always a compromise to have to put your hands through the wheel to operate equipment. I sometimes borrow a Bavaria 34 where the anchor winch controls are positioned behind the wheel, it is extremly anoying!

I agree with many others . Put the engine instruments downstairs and get a NMEA 2000 interface . Put the throttle lever on a cockpit wall down low and out of the way where ropes won’t catch it. Finally , get an aftermarket white fibreglass pod for the electronics and attach it to the wheel stand. Keeps it simple and clean

The reason many experienced sailors prefer the engine on/off switch and gauges below deck is that they don't start having quirky reliability problems within a few years caused by sun, salt and water exposure. Ever had to quickly diagnose and repair a failing engine start switch when caught out unexpectedly in a tight spot? While you need the throttle and gear shift at the helm, the rest are happier below deck for the long-term. Besides, most people prefer to use autopilots when motoring and the gauges are often much easier to monitor when placed more in the living space. Same for autopilot control heads. Long-term reliability will be much better when placed inside the companionway or at the nav station. Then just use sacrificial wireless remotes for controlling the autopilot when on deck. For the throttle/shifter, consider the Spinlock conversion that uses a shorter and removable lever that can be stowed when sailing to avoid snagging lines.

i have a suggestion, make a box that is long horizontally and has the throttle handle on the side of the steering wheel.

Like many other comments, I see a real risk of injury while reaching through the wheel to make adjustments, etc. to the electronics. I see the controllers on the left and right are similar, if not identical, in size but is the space between them is for a electronic chart? To avoid potential injury, is there room to split those three items and bring one controller to the left of the wheel and the chart and its controller to the right, or vice versa? This setup would put you centered between a left, right, and center console. You could then raise the instrument panel for better viewing. The throttle is a small challenge that may be overcome by notching the pipe inside the console and orienting the throttle lever more forward. Possibly shorten the lever some? Last idea I have is to fab a three facet console that is wide enough to put the controls outside of the wheel and could possibly solve the throttle placement by allowing you to mount it horizontally across the top left of the console. I can see this in my head but it is hard to express it in words. Basically, make it as risk free and ergonomic as possible. As always, I really enjoy watching how well you two work together and I can't wait to see what you come up with.
