    Welcome to the forum. The designs are attractive.


    The first photo you posted may have a design flaw, however. I made the same mistake of having the stern platforms too close to the engine, having made the space 4 inches too narrow, restricting the turning ability of the outboard. You may want to separate them enough to allow free movement.

    On the first render, the console design - steering wheel position is ridiculous. Pls look well written paper by Ullman on console design, I believe it was in Professional Boatbuilder or one of RINA conferences.

    Thank you for your feedback.

    -I have rotated the engine abt. 30 deg and it seems it should work, lets see. First Seago will be build next months.

    -About the steering wheel. Yes I have the paper and I was using those measurements first but it seems it is designed for jockey seats. Final placement of steering wheel will be adjusted with the prototype.
