Should be-but you might find you need to get a bit of weight in the console.

I'm 15.5 stone if that helps?

The console has a curved front which more or less renders the front useless for mounting hatches.
Under the seat will be the battery and the head of the console was going to be used for general dryish storage.

It isn't at the moment as I'm in Norway. Home tomorrow though so work will recommence!
I keep finding more things to do to it. Want it to be right when it goes in the water.
Little things like the deck, it doesn't need painting but it will look alot better if it was.
Hopefully my throttle cables and hatch should have turned up by now. Got them to fit and the steering. Need to move the battery to under the console and mount the isolator switch then I should be ready to go.
Other bits to fit are the sounder and fuel tank straps.
