Carver 3607 helm console

Postby MakinTime » March 30th, 2018, 6:17 pm

Built a new helm console for my 3607, it holds my vhf radio and a big cup holder. Built it out of wood, fiberglassed it and painted it a slate charcoal metallic. It will mount with no fasteners shown and bolts from underneath.The color pops nice in the sun. I plan on doing most all the countertops at the helm area this color to match. Decided change out the teak flip up one because it hit the throttles every time I had to open it for my vhf and it was old. Here are some pics.

Very nice. When you say you fiberglassed it, did you lay glass mat or just coat it with a resin/hardener mix?

I used chop strain mat on both sides and muded it up. My original plan was to just resin a peice of wood prime it and sand it, but it needed more strength.

Took me a few minutes to figure out what you did, because that wouldn't have fit on my 3607.

But now I see....the new one extends farther forward than my current teak hatch that sits there. Mine has a hinge and doesn't go under the throttles so there is no way they could hit.

I like the look on what you did!! Very nice!
