Just start by posting a note introducing yourself to the group, that's all it takes here (we don't ask for or retain any personal information here, because our intention is to just "have fun and share information".
Welcome aboard, please feel free to post questions, comments, and/or photos. Thanks for the good words too!
As for your logic, I would agree with the previous post that it would appear to be worthwhile to adapt to the standard automotive rotation, than to go with custom rotation on single applications. Since I've seen runabouts with the helm on the port and starboard, it seems to make little difference which side the captain is sitting on. Oh well, what appears logical often proves to be a proverbial can of worms. Regards, all the best,
