Default seamark marine pilot houses?

Anyone know whom made these (in NH?) If potter did not do himself? I am considering over next year (or 2) moving to a pilot house smaller size no enclosed back side. Figured would look into who made these.

Any other New England companies making pilot houses also can think about? Romarine maybe in RI....

They were built for the 26' Twin Vee Cats in Ft Pierce, Fla. When Potter was a rep. I think Big Shrimp has one ?

Default Pilothouse

Have no direct experience with the seamark but believe these guys are spot on about bigshrimpin having one. You could check with Brewster custom boats...I visited the Romarine shop late last March when they had their new Hillier out of the mold with decks fitted. Solid work from what I saw and know they make nice houses. However, have not seem any more updates on that Hiliner build...met with the owner and he was great to speak with.

Waterline Systems in Rhode Island is where they were built a decade ago. The molds went to TwinVee (if I remember correctly). The one I got was a demo that went to trade shows for Piratecom. Trayder/Bill Potter hooked me up with the most incredible deal ever. Mr. Potter told me cost to build the mini pilot console was over 5k in materials, parts and labor. They retailed for 10,500.


There is a twin 23SF with an i/o at Green Pond Falmouth (John Waggs)

That is a great pilot house. I miss those seamark/Hermco days. Friday afternoons I would call and talk to Don and occasionally Bill would be in the shop Having a beer and talking boats.

Hey Capt Chuck-
Although I am a SeaCraft owner since 1976 thanks to Bushwacker and Frank Williams, my boss at Pratt & Whitney, I havenít been in touch with CSC all that time. Therefore was hoping you could repost pics of the guys on your boat and back porch table with their names.
Thanks
