On other things:
-get a through hull depth transducer fitted under the deck, or a well made so you can fit one later.
-make sure you get a stainless frame made for the windshield that you can hang onto as you move forward past the console
-have it delivered with a cover
Bigger is not really an option, I'm already going to have to pare the spec back from what I would really like so adding more boat and then more trailer and a bigger engine to push it is all going the wrong way sadly!
Transducer/well is already on the list. Cover is not - it's too windy here and I think it will chafe the tubes but also it will be impossible to fit. May get a console cover to protect the electronics but long term I'd intend to build a shelter for it to keep it under cover anyway say some time in the next 5 years - got 3 acres of land to play with round the house so it should fit in
I think I will end up with a single dive console as experience with the Destroyer is that the further forwards you are, the drier you stay (in other words I get earache from the Mrs about getting wet!!). I think in our windy conditions, near a tube could be a wet place to sit ... also the indicative cost of a dual console plus four jockeys is another biggish step in the wrong direction pricewise so I'll probably end up with a single dive console plus a twin jockey behind that on the centreline, same as I have on the Humber at the moment.
