I got a great idea from someone on one of the Facebook Bennington forums a couple weeks ago for an easy, convenient and inexpensive helm storage space. Perfect for phones, wallets, remotes, anything small you want kept dry and out of the sun. Basically a substitute glovebox for your boat. I implemented it this weekend and it works great!

Materials: x1 small YETI storage pouch ($49.99) and x2 Taylor Made fender clips ($4/clip). Under $70 total.

Clips in securely right near the throttle at the helm. The Yeti pouch is water proof, comes in about 3 different color combinations, and has both a magnetic seal, as well as Velcro flap to keep it water tight (see pics). Since it is not permanent, you could repurpose, reuse, move it elsewhere on your boat, etc...

That's a great idea! I could see that on the bow gate on our boat. Let the guests use it at will (without bothering me for their stuff)!

Awesome suggestion. My 2021 has terrible storage near the helm in my opinion. I’ll be looking into this over winter.
