When I'm up and running I always stand, but when trolling I either stand or perch on the seat. I specifically designed the helm seat to double as a seat or leaning post. The trick is to get the distance just right between the seat and wheel. I mocked it up to assure it fit me.
Since the seat needs to be a bit high to double as a leaning post, it means that even my long legs wouldn't touch the deck so I also added a foot rest.
I didn't want the space inside the seat pedestal to go to waste, so I made it my tackle storage.
I'm 6-2 and when standing, the top of the wind screen comes about to my chin and it's just below the grab rail. It's not easy to see in this photo but you can make it out if you look close. Note that the top is curved and not straight across - purely aesthetics.
The main body of the wind screen is straight up and plumb with the forward face of the console.
I debated a lot with myself on how to treat the top edge. Leave it straight, or bend it forward or aft? I was in uncharted waters here and finally just guessed that if I went forward that I could keep it low enough to see over, and yet the wind would curl up and over my head.
Sometimes you just get lucky and it works like a charm.
