I am a big fan of the wrap around console however, there does seem to be one major drawback in that the forward access gap in the Pascoe type one eats into the available dash board space for plotters and other electrical kit.
Come the glorious day, my mega rib (yeah right) will have an offset one piece console like Hydrolift use on their 24 footer (photo on the left). This allows forward access along one side of the boat & plenty of space for toys on the dash.
This, like the rest of the boat, will no doubt be made of unobtanium.
