Hey,
You are absolutely right about the cheap dash and the gauge configuration. I'm 6 8 and I can't even see the speedo or tach. Just for grins, take a look at some of the big rigs. Everything is where you can see it quickly, and get to switches without having A find the tiny thing, B they re all in the same area of the dash. I drive a Volvo, dash configuration is a must for constant monitoring of systems. AS seem to be reminisant of the old toranados or eldorados of the 70s big ... But we sit so much higher than those boats. So the dash is all wrong. That is a winter project for sure. And the plastic. Geez, can it get more cheesy than that.
I like your Chris craft ideas teak with an aluminum inlayed edge. Put the little gauges on the right move the speedo/ tach up and put the now bigger lite rocker switches together maybe to the right of the small gauges loose the amp. Radio could stay where they got it they got that right. The AC vents are in good locals. I might turn the outside ones sideways though. Gotta think about that for a while. They make rocker switches that are bigger maybe like 1 1/2 tall ones . The big rigs have 2 inch switches. That would be to big maybe even 1 inch rockers . You got me thinking. Good stuff . Thanks DJ

If either of you change your dash, could you try and keep sold old bits, especially the silver rectangle going round air vents. Mine is damaged so looking for a donor part. Thanks Nick
