new Console

I never really liked the console i fitted in the new build eariler in the summer, it was a console that i had bought for a narrower hull and i was silly to just use it rather than investigate options.

but i fitted it and then started to look at other options, i have had some recent dealings with Scorpion Ribs as a main client has one and i needed to get some spares for him and while i was down there i started chetted with the guys about their consoles and suddenly before i knew what i was doing i had placed an order.

The mouldoing is super and the laminating and finish is really nice, what you would expect i guess.

so i picked it up last week and it just fits in the garage so i have been fitting it out.....

i will let the pictures tell the story....

there is two recesses on the top aft of the screen and i have fitted 2 drinks cup holders in each side, i am still doing the drain system for these.

The layout was pretty tricky to sort, i spent a lot of time on the net looking at pictures so i could get it looking right, but i guess thats a matter of opinion.

i think it looks good and i spent hours sat in the console doing the cable runs..... always the area that can look shabby but i think the more you do the better it looks. i think i might be getter there but more practise required...

there is a central nav pole to be mounted aft of the screen in the middle of the top of the console, this holds gps, vhf antenna and a LED bi colour nav light, i made this out of carbon tube, think it looks pretty good compared to expensive stainless...

Compass would have gone were the nav pole is to be fitted!! I have not fitted a magnetic compass to my past two boats.... I'm normally always along the coast, but I guess the day the fog closes in and the plotter goes down I will have issues.....

Antennas and nav lights

Got the nav pole dry fitted so I can finish off the cable runs.

Then need to plug a battery into the whole lot to test all the systems.....
