  • Switch Panel Ideas, 241 & 261

    I need a new switch panel, and know I am not going back with the down low recessed panel that is original. I would love to see some consoles to get some ideas. For now I am planning to flush mount Garmin on helm side and like idea of keeping starboard side c-pac available for storage.

    Current plan is Garmin flush mounted, Fusion head unit and vhf in e-box, and 1 multi function motor gauge. I might need to go with blue seas option until I know exactly what I want, and how many switches I need. Does anyone recommend custom panel makers other than New Wire?

    Isn't there some Dentist on here that makes panels? name escapes me..

    I like keeping it simple and clean. If my engine interfaced with my Garmin, I'd toss the multi gauge.

    Same with a stereos, if I didn't already buy a radio, I'd pick up a bluetooth receiver and hide it in the console. I end up playing all music off my phone anyway.

      Fusion was a gift, and is going in the e-box because it has bluetooth and I will be using my phone. I like the radio because it has plenty of power to push 4 small speakers, and I can get a smaller amp to push a couple larger speakers and a sub.

      I had forgotten about the dentist made switch panels I have seen, I will have to inquire if the time and desire exits to make another [].

        So I have no idea how to post images here... but check out the link above.

        This is my helm that I cleaned up last year. I replaced the switch panel (on a budget) with a Blue Seas panel. Its not perfect, but I really like the way everything freshened up.

            What didn't you like about the original arrangement? You could assemble your own new panel using weatherproof breakers.

                Powerplay that is very nice.

                Ballbuster I guess it is just not what I'm used to. I really like switches right in front of me. This is the panel I had made for my 224.

                        Chuck,

                        Here is a one that I saw on the web years ago. It may have been from this site and I hope I'm not treading on anyone's toes. Rather, I hope it is taken as a compliment.

                            so your plan is to cover the port side C-pak with starboard or some sort of panel to flush mount everything and leave starboard original with slide out lexan door? I took out both sides and put one big piece of starboard on my 241, but I kinda like your idea too for storage, wallets, keys etc. I used a panel of weatherproof breaker switches to add more accessories under the 10" Garmin that was on that boat, wish it was easier to attach images here
