Main Station Lower Helm Restoration nearly complete...

Postby carl » Fri Mar 30, 2018 1:10 pm

My Main Station Helm restoration in the salon/pilot house is nearly complete. Today I installed a pilot chair, it is a Garelick brand and a good fit for the Marinette with its classic look. It is comfortable and I'm satisfied with how it turned out. I have a little more work in the AC and DC power distribution panels and then I will button it all up and call it complete.

I hope you have a nice, strong plate under the floor to brace that pedestal!

We do indeed have a nice, strong plate under the floor to brace that pedestal!

Looks really nice but the helm is on the wrong side. Or did you reverse the negative?

The helm is on the port side on sedan models, stb side on express models.

Didn't know that they had a method to their madness when they made them. I just like it on the British side, that's what I'm used to.--Ed
