Helm layout

A few photos of the pilot house helm station. Looking forward, from left to right:

Bilge pumps panels, stabilizer panel, watermaker controls, tank monitors, main dc and ac circuit breaker panels.

Inverter breaker panel and monitor, VHF radio, depth sounder, instruments breaker panel.


Radar display, rudder angle indicator, main engine and generator displays (tachometers, oil temp and pressure, hour meters), autopilot, thruster and spotlight controls, compass.

Throttle and transmission controls, chart plotter, AIS, auxillary air horn.


  1. Thanks for the tour, nice to put a visual image to the word image Sean has been giving us.

  2. I have been following your adventures for many years and have so enjoyed reading your blog. I just want to thank you both for sharing the adventure all of these years including the good and the bad. I especially love all of your adventures on Vector since living on a boat is a dream of mine as well but sadly I will probably never be able to afford it (although I RV and love it). Thanks again for sharing !!
