Here's a couple pics of the 27 Wooldridge Pilot House that I recently bought from Sportdrifter. (Rob....here's your pics)

In the other post I mentioned adding an Espar heater and installing a "hot dogger" in-line on the ducting system and Daninak wanted more info....here's the gist of it from Kaisersosi's boat that I toured yesterday and am using the idea.
Have one of your Espar heater hoses vent into the side of a box (his box was about 12" wide x 18" tall x 24" deep, made of wood and mounted behind the captains chair). Coming out the other end of the box is another vent that lets the hot air out into the cab.
The hot box has a lid/door on it so you can stuff cans of soup, seal a meal dinners, etc... in there. The heat passing through the box warms it up (just like a giant hot dogger on a snowmachine exhaust). He also mentioned on top of the hot box is a great place to dry gloves, warm up socks, and so on.
The other neat and cheap idea was to replace some lights with LED bulbs and LED strips. Going to have to look into it as they really lit up the cab nicely.
Also noticed some winch arms on other boats (Event Horizon's 24 Wooldridge and Spoiled One's Glacier Craft) that they use to raise/lower the zodiacs. They looked pretty slick!
Right now we will be ordering and installing the Espar D4 and doing lots of planning and dreaming till May.
Again, thanks to all who helped and gave us some great advice over the last two weeks to get this boat. Look forward to meeting up with you in PWS.
