Thanks. I kept looking at that space, wondering what I could do. We thought about moving the ladder, but it would have messed up the port side sitting area, plus a lot more $$ to glass in the old hole in floor of bridge and make a new hole. The swinging cabin door to starboard was really messing us up, would have to close door to cabin, access the space, then open door back up, etc etc. By making it a sliding door, got rid of that issue. Also thought about a whole new ladder type. Put tackle center in that spot, but have first few steps of ladder built into the center, then ladder from center up to to bridge. Good concept but my customers really enjoy going up on the bridge, especially coming in from a trip, and I couldn’t see some of my “larger” customers navigating that safely. Got the idea from this boat. We didn’t have as much room between ladder and side for the tackle center, so had to eliminate wheel and go with jog lever. I will use rear helm only when docking, maybe fighting a tuna, or moving 50 yards here and there to stay on top of a school of fish.
