The helm area is raised roughly 7" above the floor of the salon allowing more space below in the "work area" of the engine room. There are to outward opening doors with screens to both sides, and a "black out style curtain that can be drawn across to separate the helm from the salon for night operations. A currently inspected 5 lb. CO2 extinguisher is secured beside the starboard door.
