SIB fishing console

Hi all.
I have been thinking about buiding a type of "console" for my fishing. My idea is to build it out of timber (maybe ply) and it will sit across the tubes of my sib, with some small cupboards underneath for safety and fishing gear and my fishfinder and gps set up and fastened to the top, perhaps under cover. This will be removed when the boat is not in use, and will be fastened down when in use (not sure exactly how yet).
My main question is will the wood (with a finish such as varnish) resting on top of the tubes damage the tubes?

as a one off probely not, but for regular use in salt water i think that the wood /varnish would eventualy do some damage ,something soft like a strip of rubber or carpet may help but even some types of carpet can be abrasive ,might be better sticking a strip of velcro on the tubes where the seat will contact it will probly stop the wear on tubes and will help hold it in place better ,regards mart.

Hi Mart,
I should have explained a little better. The console will just be for a kind of work station. When I am out I just sit on the floor, so the console wouldn't be for sitting on. Does this make a difference to the wear?
Cheers,
Geoff

Why not fit it as a quick release to the floor instead so it doesn't touch the tubes?

Hi Nos4r2,
I have an alloy floor in my boat. Do you mean a kind of strap that is fastened to the floor and would be clipped over the console?
Cheers,
Geoff

That'd be one way-or if it's feasable to glue some hypalon patches to the box and floor you could use loop and toggle, or fit a reinforced insert to the floor to wind a wing bolt into-or loads of other ways.

How about glueing a patch of neoprene to the underside of the wood, where it would be touching the tubes, to prevent wear. The neoprene is softer than the tube so would wear first, and could easily be replaced once it does.
