The previous engine control panel was located on the binnacle. I won't have that option. I have spent some time trying to decide where to put the new one. Many boats have the panel low down in the cockpit well. I don't like that for a few reasons (water damage and having to bend down to read etc.).
Nice to cut in and find good adhesion between the outer layer and the balsa core.
Bigger gap between the cabin top and the liner than I expected. Good for running lighting electrical cables etc.
Red background is temporary, will eventually be black starboard.
