One word of caution though, I notice you have used the twist/turn padlockable latches to secure your rear seat box. I've had these fail on my boat as the turnbuckle is only rivetted onto the base plate, and not very well at that. I imagine it could be a bit of a safety issue if they failed on a choppy crossing somewhere.
Thanks for the tip. I'll keep a close eye on them.

looks great! - very smart. I've been working my 340 the past month or so - I've got an Outhill JC12T console. Probably slightly too heavy for the boat but very comfortable.

It needed a good clean up when I got it and I've since added the backrest and lower handles to the console and tidied up the cables with washing machine outlet tubing - slice it in down the centre and it does a very neat job of bunching and hiding the cables with some zip ties every now and again.

I've got a Lalizas pole light coming which I'm going to mount on the back of the backrest? Probably too short for the transom at 65cms.

Hi Chris. Nice set up, and suspect your Outhill jockey console is lighter than my marine ply seat boxes and seats. I see you have the Honda 20hp. Almost bought one of those myself, with power tilt/trim, but couldn't get the price down to one I was willing to pay.

I have the same 65cm Lalizas pole light on mine, mounted on the back of the rear seat box.
