    Not to port side of bridge.

      Ah. All clear now, Socal. Good idea!

      Bill, thanks. I'll look for wedges. Unfortunately, planned improvements are currently on hold due to severe damage to canvas by recent storm. Facing unforeseen use of carefully hoarded boat bucks.

        Carefully hoarded boat bucks? Is that the same thing as a stash of money the Mrs. doesn't know about?!

          For me it's my 22 year mining pension. Linda knows about it but agrees that it is for the boat.

            Well it's finished with only the mounting on the upper helm to be done. Picking up my seat boxes Saturday and hope to have everything done in a week or so. I applied 3 coats of fiberglass resin to both inside and out. Then 3 coats of gelcoat to the exterior. Put in a spring opener, latch to keep it tightly closed on the rubber gaskets and used some spare flooring material I had for a tabletop.

                Thanks Mike, I had to improve my "game" since you bought a 28, the "bar" got raised a bunch then.

                  Ha! cheers Bill. Although my poor boat could use a sprucing up at the moment, some of my railing fittings show corrosion and I have some rust staining to chase!

                      Great job with the chart table Bill. Looks like it will do just what you need. I really like the finish.

                      My upper helm has the original seating of helm seat in the middle, L-shaped bench seat on the port side, and short bench seat on the starboard. There's very little room to move, and I don't really need that seating. I've been trying to think of a better arrangement, and I'd love to hear what's worked for you'uns.

                      Sounds like I had the same bridge layout as you Smee when I bought my 28. I have since removed the L-bench. Mine had a plywood base that was getting pretty rotted. I haven't taken out the starboard seat yet but that is next. I think I'll put in a second swivel seat near the helm like Bill did. For now I have a cooler where the L-bench was. I might just make a removable seat that goes on the top of that in case third person wants to sit up top. While underway I don't really like to have more than three up there.

                        Finished and the beautiful seat boxes that Nova built are installed and hatches in place. Pretty pleased with outcome. ​​

                              Looking great. Nice seats they look comfy. Wish I had a garage that could fit my boat.
