With Weidhaas at the wheel, I was able to have a look around before we headed for the dock. The Davis 70 is all about size. The air-conditioned bridge features a vast helm console with the kind of space that allows both captain and guests to get maximum enjoyment whether cruising, hooked up and fighting a big fish, or simply hanging out after a day on the water. There's plenty of seating forward and stowage compartments for fishing gear. This 70 had the full EZ2CY enclosure but an enclosed bridge is also available. I found the sightlines forward a little flawed, and even when standing on the raised helm platform, had difficulty seeing the bow. Admittedly, I'm under the six-foot mark, but if this were my boat, I would rework the helm setup. "Being a custom boat, we can configure the bridge any way an owner or his captain wants," commented Weidhaas, adding that helm and seating placement are flexible, and an aft steering station and a remote control to drive the boat from anywhere are available. Some other neat additions on this boat were hydraulically operated outriggers and radio antennas.
