Its a bit narrow but doable.  Even fighting fish we're able to get by the side of the cabin if we end up going forward on the boat.   I plan on putting railings along the gunnels this spring and think it will help make it more natural to walk by the cabin.  More often than not I find that everyone walks on the side shelves (supports) and steps down into the cabin or aft deck.  I'll look around for some pics if would help make more sense.

Coldwater, is your jumbo wider than the standard jumbo beam? Because the beam at chine given by Renn for a jumbo is 72". If you add a few inches for the width you gain at foot level by having a deck on top of stringers then your effective beam as far as walking space is concerned would be something like 76". If your cabin is 54" wide that leaves 11" either side of the cabin to get by. Do you find that's enough room?

Mine is at 54"/4.5' wide.  Very comfortable with 3 people but we regularly have 4 in there...   

This little cabin design really could go anywhere forward or aft...  in fact I wish I would've put mine about 6" further forward to give a bit more room in the stern for trolling.   The width is right over the top of the stringers in my jumbo, so the weight/moment would transfer no matter where it goes.

Here is a another option to throw on the table...   Might be close to what you are considering and easily modified to get to where you want.  I made up some simple plans/templates that could be printed or cut via cnc.

Is there any reason that house couldn't be located amidships instead of in the stern, for those who want a rear deck?  And how many people will your wheel/doghouse seat?

That looks sweet Coldwater!  What is the width on this cabin? I guess you have it designed for a Jumbo  but it could probably work on a widebody too if made to be more narrow.

Jim I went with the spring release ball ends from midwest control like kayak mentioned...   easy setup and install.   I just disconnect and store the linkage when I've got my kicker up.

These are what I used, stainless: http://www.midwestcontrol.com/series.php?id=21

I like the idea of a separate steering station for the kicker. I have been thinking the same thing, I was inspired while watching Wicked Tuna. Good luck with your build. The hardest part is getting started, the rest just falls into place.

Excellent - good to hear you are moving ahead!  Getting the wife on board is a huge step.   Let the fun begin!

Update: My wife says build a boat, so I have the approval.  I am working on my small project and if all goes well I am at about 95% sure I will build.
I know what I will build, it will be a 26' jumbo, pilot house/cuddy cabin.  Cuddy large enough to sleep two, pilot house large enough for a driver/passenger seat, and two bench seats (3' or such, large enough for a decent size ice chest to slide under the bench)  always add a cabinet/counter on one side later on).  The rest fishing room.

Motors if prices stay as they are it will be a 115 etec main, a 25hp high thrust yamaha kicker.  The 115 will be driven from the pilot house, the 25hp kicker will have a steering/controls on the outside of the pilot house.  That way I can drive and fish, we don't have to have a dedicated driver up in the pilot house.  A 25hp high thrust will provide plenty of power for ocean trolling and making it in if the main fails.
Kicker will have it's own fuel system and battery, but will charge the main battery while running.

I still have to decide if I buy a kit or build from scratch.
