I found a couple of old photos of a few past sibs with mods i have done ,sorry about the quality as there from the late 70s >i was going bald then <,but might be of intrest to someone,on the orange HUMBER 16 the jocky seat- console was made from aluminium angle and then boxed in with g.r.p sheeting from an old road traffic bollard that got knocked down ,i left one side open for access to fuel tank,the anchor box in front was from a g.r.p.motorcycle top box i could remove the whole lot within 5 mins if needed, the A frame was made from aluminium scaffolding poles from scrap yard and an old fold up deck chair,but the first mk one version was p.v.c sink waste pipe and push fit joints from d.i.y.store, regards mart.

AndrewOriordan, that is a stellar example of a job well done. I love it. When I came up with an idea for my "command center" I thought I had a good idea but yours is in a whole 'nother league!!! Kudos! Haven't had time to work on mine and after seeing the job you did not so sure i'd post pictures anyway. Lol. Will look hack by comparison but it will be within my skill set so...

Some good idea in this thread, when I get to the interior of my boat I will be using some of these ideas for sure! Thanks.

Hi & welcome to Ribnet.
I take my hate off to you if you can getaway with having your boat in your front room!
And nice mod you have done too.
