    4788 flybridge instrument panel-gctid381673

    I have just put in a re-manned pair of Cummings 370's and I have to run a new set of plug and play gauges up to the fly bridge. The old instrument panel in a unique shape and I already had to custom mount the manufactured panels on the lower helm station.$700 later it doesn't look as good as the original panels did.

    Someone on this web site will make you new instrument panels for a 47 made from burlwood like material or black, including any unique cutouts you want. I am sure they will speak up.

      I'm pretty sure that it is Somesailor. If you can't find him here, he is usually hanging out over at iboatnw.com

        We didn't replace the gauges in the flybridge but we did replace the ones in the pilothouse.

        The panels that Somesailor made up look better than the original.

        He can make you up something for the flybridge, but that will require you to cut out the existing panel, and its thick fiberglass.

        Just a question...

        You went with fly by wire gauges???

        Please do tell. Did you go with electronic engines, or did you add a transducer interface in the engine compartment and have some type of digital communications like NMEA 2000?

          Kevin, do you have pictures of your new pilothouse panels?

            I've done a couple dozen pilothouses now. Shoot me an email: [email protected]

            I can manufacture them based on either ABS or aluminum substrate (the base panel onto which the laser engraved burl is applied) and both work very well. Just a matter of cost. I'm revamping my website right now, but there are some pictures on here of Kevin's install. His look awesome because he put in all new gauges and Head units.

              do you have a template for a 4087 motoryacht? Flybridge or down below?

                Mike, maybe it is too early for me, but where can I find the pictures of Kevin's panels (or even other installed 4588/4788 panels)? I thought you had some on your old web site, but can't recall how to find that either.

                Thanks

                  The 4087 is slightly different, but it's a simple effort to bolt your old ones down and edge probe them and digitize the lines in. Only takes a few minutes.

                    To replace the dash panels in a 47, do all the wires have to be removed or is there an easier way to do it?

                      You do have to unplug all of the gauges if that's what you mean? You can do them one at a time if you wish though. Many times I make the panels from owner provided templates or drawings.Here's one of Kevins:

                        Yes, every wire. The gauges come out of the front.

                        I'll post some better photos when I get off work tonight.

                          It doesn't hurt when you're not afraid to buy expensive stuff to put in the new holes either. I've seen some serious electronics dropped in these dashes over the years. Dual chartploters, Floscans, digital gauges, micro commanders, autopilots, you name it.

                          Fun to get to see some of these boats first hand too. Regrettably I didn't get to see Kevin's pilothouse, but I suspect he'll be back down this way picking up his Nordhaven some day.

                              I just want those gauges in mine. My poor old Lehmans wouldn't know how to act with all that connected to them.
