Sure, absolutely we can make a template - either paper or wood. Thanks!

Here's another one that went out yesterday... a Boston Whaler dash panel. 1/2" marine acrylic. Bocatech resettable switches (red rings), backlit text... and Reverse Flush Mount Garmin and Fustion unit. Came out really nice.

One more... this was for a Bluewater. Two backlit logo etchings. Twin Garmin 8616's using the "Reverse Flush" mounting method we developed (see graphic above) to make the screens all flush.

Even Reverse Flushed the AP - which is thicker than the acrylic so needed a custom bracket. We're the place to go if you want this style dash.

This was also stud mounted with 12 stainless studs. If you tried to use reverse painted clear acrylic, you would have had to glue this in, and could not Reverse Flush the instruments... we're really developing a unique offering on these dashes, which are becoming really popular.

Here's a really neat project we did for a 26 Reg. 3 Piece dash panels... including trim tabs. Checkout how we were able to get the proof printed at kinkos to verify fit and layout during the proof review process.

Do you guys have templates for boats you've used in the past? I have a 1999 Pursuit 3000 Express and the dash seems to be slightly off symetrically with many rounded corners that I can't seem to get a perfectly accurate template of to draw up on AutoCAD. I wanted to send in your RFQ sheet with a template to get a price and some options but I don't want to send bad information on sizing.

Gali :

A - Yes, sometimes we do have previous panels on file
B - Even if we do, we were reliant on a previous customer's measurements - so it needs to be verified by you
C - We don't have a Pursuit 300 Express yet.

So - when it comes to verifying an odd shape we can work from a template you make and mail. Or the old panel if you can stand having your boat non-functioning for a few weeks. Or, sometimes it's not super critical, and a "less-odd-shaped" panel will still work. Also, all our proofs are to scale, and can be taken to a Kinkos or Office Depot and printed out in full size to verify. Or, we can even cut a plywood version to mail and verify. Or sometimes you can take measurements every 2" or so and we can mimic the curves from that. or, or or...

... point is, we have done this thousands of times, and have a variety of tools we can use to work with you to capture the shape well enough to look awesome. Send a picture of your dash and our estimators will work with you on how to proceed.

Exact shape is not necessary to get a quote though. So if you just send the picture, and max height and width... and description of what you're looking for, we can get you an estimate or quote. Please include that you will need an odd shape duplicated if that's the case, so we can estimate accurately. It helps as well to know the tolerances allowable. (eg: +/- 1/8" | +/- 1/4", etc).

The panels don't have to be large... here's a small little gloss acrylic panel that went out today:

The gloss black isn't hard on the eyes when out in the sun?

subbed. I like the look of the reverse flush mount.

I have twin simrad 12", autopilot and will possible add a vessel view. I might be in contact when I get to the dash. Whats the lead time and cost like?

Lovegettinsnooked - I saw that one come through... such a cool logo, makes me happy.

Hull and Void - It's pretty much a mirror - so yeah, I'd take that into consideration if you're considering acrylic... reality I guess is that most of the area is pretty much screens, which are glossy anyway.

RichardK. - Lead time varies through the year... we're maintaining 2 weeks right now, which is pretty good for mid march in the boat business I think. Cost varies really widely depending on scope, email us some pics and measurements: sales@newwiremarine.com - for this look probably $500 is the low end - $5k is high end with a dozens of switches, logos, backlighting, etching, wiring, etc.

Looks great! Have you reverse flush mounted an ICOM or Standard Horizon VHF? I'm interested to see how it would look given that their front trim has a taper to it...

viperkiller - Yeah, we've looked at at ICOM anyway (and RA70s)... does not work the same way. Since it has a draft / taper it leaves a big crack between the panel face and the unit and just kind of ruins the look IMO. I prefer to surface mount those things... or if you've just got to have everything reverse flushed, move the VHF to another area and put a remote mic where you can reach it.

Here's another one for a Hydra Sport with rockers (blue LED).

I try to grab pictures of any gloss black panels with rockers I catch before going out b/c this style seems to attract people who also want the push button look... but rockers really work great with it too!
