Wanted - Jockey Console.

I have just bought a 5M Avon ex-diving boat which I am trying to convert into a "silk purse"!! Can anyone advice where I can get a good " used" or a reasonably priced Jockey Console (2 person) and a bench seat with hinged back rest. I live in Dublin but will travel if price is right.

Gary.

Try

www.outhill.com

This will give you plenty of ideas but I'm afraid nothing is cheap, I too am looking for some further console seating and bearing in mind they can be as much as 300 to 400 quid I am seriously thinking of knocking something up myself

hmm, visited a Yahama and Honda dealer in Pembroke (Neyland side) a couple of years ago. He was making consoles for Narwal I think, under contract. Offered to make me an ordinary console for 160. Think he was called victoria yachts or something similar. Might be worth a few phone calls. Had a good workshop and very much a family business with a "can do" outlook on life.

I did a lot of research as part of an A-level design course...an made my own console out of Plywood. It was very substantial and had all the extra features on it that I wanted... sold it for 250 when finished...Building your own can work out cheaper and the quality of build can actually be better...Still have the designs...

Alex.....this sounds just the job. What are the chances of organising a copy of the plans/designs? Can they be e-mailed?
I'm fairly handy and I'd like to give it a go...paticularly if it saves me a few bob!!
Please let me know if tere is a charge...Thanks & regards, Gary

try Fairweather marine in Fareham Hants, should have a website to search, I was speaking to him the other day and they can supply double jockey seats at a reasonable price, they were also willing to sell fibreglass on its own allowing you to do the finishing
