Albin 27 Helm
I'm looking ahead at how to organize my helm since I have free reign for new electronics, engine panel, etc. Do I mount electronics high (from the ceiling) or low from the helm counter top? I like the idea of an uncluttered counter top. I've seen too many Albin 27 helms that are cluttered like Grandma's basement. I mean, do you really need every piece of electronics spanning four generations stuffed into your helm station? This is not the Millennium Falcon or Battlestar Galactica.
The boat was delivered to me with a large binnacle compass, vhf, stereo, and a Garmin gps unit I may reuse. After pulling everything out and removing all the helm wiring, I plugged all my extra holes in the dash. I will mount the new engine panel, running light switches, etc on the dash in the old spot.
I'm coming up with a list of switches that need to be accessible from the helm, as well as the gauges needed on the engine panel or in the vicinity.
