Hey BD! I'm not trying to spam on this section of the forum, but wasnt sure where to post this. Seemed like the right spot to me .

Anyhow, I've had a few people tell me to show off my switch panels. So here they are. I can design pretty much whatever you would like. Any color, any label, any art work or boat name/logo, etc... u name it and im sure I could make it happen. All panels can be lighted with LED for night navigation too. I did this because I wanted something a little cooler than the traditional rocker style switches with the little pictures on them that light up. I was looking for something a little more unique and personal. .. Below are a few examples of what I did with my own boat. Testing the waters here to see if I could help out anyone who wants something custom or different from the normal, and to see if anyone would even be interested. Either way, check it out and enjoy.

are you etching the lexan, or putting a sticker on it to silhouette the image, or other?

All the panels are laser etched on the inside. It's a negative image. No stickers. The face/outside is perfectly smooth.

You are doing some really awesome work there!
That said I can tell it is WAY beyond the scope of my wallet...
I would be marketing those to the high end motor yacht manufacturers and retrofitters...

Good luck!

Hey Gary Smith,
My apologies for the extremely long delay getting back to you. Anyhow, you reached out to me back in october showing some interest in my laser etched switch panels and the custom work i can do. I tried to call you but the number seemed to have been disconnected. Im still happy to help and meet you at your boat anytime if your still interested. Feel free to contact me directly at 619-715-5974. Tony Castiglione.
I posted all the pics of my skipjack 24 and my custom console.

Tony...

It's not as much a long shot as you think.
But it will take up all of your time to get off the ground.
IMO...The panels you're showing here would be great examples to show off to the manufacturers.
Although I believe you would have your best luck by landing accounts with the biggest refit companies (that's where the real money is anyway) as most builders will be reluctant to make changes in their processes.
But hey....why not take your boat over to Defiance and get their opinion?
Nothing to lose but time....can point you toward some other places too!

Thanks man! I feel like the basic boat builder wouldnt be interested... maybe they would. I know most fishing boats come pretty plane jane and simple.. all the fancy stuff is all ad ons after the sale. Not a bad idea though! I would be looking for something a little bit more high end. You may be onto something with the refit companies. I guess i havent put much thought into it as from a business stand point. I simply did it for fun, and was wanting to help out anyone else who may want something like mine. Now my wheels are turning! :) haha. Thanks.
