Below is an extract of the content:

Coastal Craft president Jeff Rhodes and naval architect Gregory C. Marshall put some serious thought into the design of the lower helm station of the Coastal Craft 65 Concord. As Rhodes and I sped across the flat-calm waters of Howe Sound, not far from Coastal Craft’s home port of Gibsons, British Columbia, I felt like I was drivin’ a big, broad-shouldered, bluewater-capable, all-aluminum motoryacht while kicked back in the cushy comfort of a Herman Miller Eames Chair, ottoman included.

Ergonomics were partially responsible. The sweetly contoured, topstitched leather Stidd helmseat I was sitting in had been precisely installed and perfectly adjusted height-wise to produce superb sightlines over the bow throughout the rpm register. And then there was all that wraparound safety glass—the sightlines I was enjoying were superb, not only straight ahead through the three windshield panels but side to side as well. And finally, the fold-up, rubber-clad Stidd footrest under my sock-clad feet was secured in such a way as to produce a very satisfying, relaxing feeling for all the senses.
