What’s the best switch in your opinion? I am talking about longevity. Thanks

If your major concern is longevity my recommendation is rocker switches with LEDs in them (which we have in Red, White and Blue)... we see 20 year old panels come back with rockers that still work great. 100,000 hour MTBF on those LEDs... which might as well be 100 years on a boat. Like the ones on the Freeman panel above we posted August 25th.

Sorry I am talking about the push switches like bocatech and blueseas maybe other brands? I know the difference between them build in brakers vs fuse boxe. Maybe they are to new to talk about longevity? What about reliability?

Could you please call to discuss your particular needs? (843) 297-8348. We work with several manufacturers and they all have their pros and cons, so I'd rather discuss your specific situation than make a blanket statement on an open forum. You can ask for Eric if you want to speak to me specifically. Thanks!

In my opinion Regulator panel Bocatech Switch is the best switch with Matte Black Blue Bocatech Push Button Backlite Regulator....

These look fantastic! How do you recommend cleaning them, to keep water spots to a minimum?

These look amazing! I have an old Jupiter and the console has an angle in it. Can you do a panel with an angle in it?

I am looking to repower soon and want to put a second Garmin 8616 where the current gauges are.

this isn’t a great picture of the angle but I would like one panel that goes across the entire dash.

Best to use a new (clean) microfiber towel or similar. Windex. Boat soap. Rubbing alcohol are all good. They do get scratches and micro (towel) scratches, but normal wear is generally pretty uniform, so unless you put a big gouge in it (that can be sanded and buffed out) look very nice and new for years and years.

Great question... absolutely, we have build dashes for dozens of boats with angles on the console faces.

If you can make a "lay flat" template to mail us and attempt to bend it yourself on-site to match the radii and angle, then you can try that... but the best way is to do two separate panels. It's much easier to install, less risk, and looks better (see below)

I actually personally prefer a little white space between the two faces (like the bottom section of the examples below). This breaks up the black a bit and makes an overall better looking completed project IMO.

Your console is actually perfect for that... would be a huge appearance upgrade. I'd probably even do the face under where the binnacle is.

Here's one of the same boat... one space with push buttons, one no-space with rockers:

Which do you prefer?

steve1081 - here's what I'd consider doing with your boat... 3 panels, shown below... or if you could get that old switch panel box glassed in, then extend panel #3 all the way to the left. I'd leave the white horozontal surface to break up the black.

Give us a shout to discuss! (843) 297-8348 or sales@newwiremarine.com

That looks great. Would also allow me to do panel 2 now and wait on the other 2 until I repower. I’m sending an email now.

Are those the 16" or 19" monitors, & what is the total width of your panel is in that application? Can you butt the monitors together w/ your reversed flush mount, or would it looks strange? Trying to figure out if I can squeeze in 19's, or should stick w/ 16's on a new dash build. You guys are doing some great looking work. Thx.

I’ll double check this job Monday, but we did 2 NSO19’s recently on another 39 YF... 2017 I’m pretty sure these were 19’s.

You can’t butt them together because the bracket behind sticks out a tad more than the glass (1/16” or so), so IMO you’d want a bit of acrylic between them to avoid the ugly ‘bracket crack’ so to speak, lol kitebuz

Haha, yeh, nobody likes a bracket crack! Thanks for replying on a Sun. I would be interested to know what the dimensions of that panel are if they are 19's. I saw this on another of your threads which is helpful. I'm just starting in on the the dash design, & thinking I could build it around your dims.

kitebuz Screenshots of the most recent 39 YF design are below... reverse flush Simrad NSO19's. If I had this to do over again, I'd probably move the screens a little closer so the material up in the corners was not as thin.

Came out absolutely incredible though, using a new super secret material I had to redact from the prints.



I hesitate to even post this picture here because we have not really 'released' this new material yet - but if you all promise not to tell anyone yet, check it out... shhhh!

That looks awesome! Thanks for the pics & details on the dimensions. So, it looks like I need a hair over 34" or 39" depending on 16" vs 19" monitors. I'll have to get going on my dash design as that might be my deciding factor. I go back & forth on the matte vs gloss - both look great. If I sent you a carbon fiber panel would you be able to machine it?
