Best place for a console?

As it seems I m keeping my boat I ve decided I might invest in a new console.

Who makes big double consoles? I ve looked at the usual sites but I m not sure whos still in business etc..

Do I take it from reading here that outhill arent very good?

If anyone has something for sale also I would be interested...just a plain console, no suicide seats but perhaps a windscreen..

Thanks

...and here was me expecting "in front of the jockeys" as an answer.....

All joking aside why not ask the rib manufacturers? They all do a variety of consoles for their hulls and I'm sure most would be happy to quote you for a standalone one.

Which ones are still going?? I ve been to the osprey ribs and the shakespeare sites and they cant be loaded...Are they still in business? Also tried the winsor marine one and that doesnt load.

Tried Humber;she said she would phone me straight back with prices etc..Nothing!

I looked at the Outhill ones but it seems they arent well respected on here??

Redbay's Patrol console is available standalone. It will take a lot of equipment and has a huge dry storage compartment in the base. It won't be cheap though

It looks small in these pics, it's not, that's just a very big rib

Aye, humber are not known for their lightning fast responses. Took a week to get back to me about a set of replacement trunks...

Try an email. I found that worked a bit faster.

I bought mine from Winsor Brothers aka Ocean, but you could also try calling Roy at Osprey as I'm sure he'll supply you with one Osprey.

The Ribeye shop on fleabay have a couple up for sale, I have the curved one without the suicide seat at the front...still yet to fit it.

The sale ends soon but they should be back up for sale once the auction ends.

Also Pirana Ribs have a couple for sale too....
