    Who likes my new helm station/tackle drawer/storage


    Orginal plywood helm station is in excellent condition however it’s a 2’x2’ heavey unusefull box.


    Redesigned helm station will be a fraction of weight compared to original plus valuable drawer storage tackle/first aid/flaregun/flares/fire extinisher1/upper/lower diangleshelves ect.


    Feel free to comment I’m used the both positive and critical responses

    Better yet post images of how you stow your little stuff.

    update I used a nicer bolster type seat. stainless steel sliders, plastic drawer SS screws.

    I like freeing up deckspace.

    drawer slides needs adjusting for top tackle tray it sits atop of aluminum box
