Very nice work! Those seats will still be there when you come off a big roller, right?

Re: Cockpit Project of an Old Racer

Yeah! That was part of the construction idea, it was if I ever decide to goto power winches I'd have room for them w/o interfering with the after berths headroom. Plus the original winches are 30+ years and parts are not available (Japanese). The wiring would be an easy access as well, being right above the batteries. I've re-built the boat to fit my own needs/wants!

BTW the seats stay in place very well unless the cockpit were to become awash, and then I probably would not have the seats in place under those weather conditions. One needs unobstructed space in bad weather.
