Yeah - looks good from the front!

But from the stern it's gonna look like sh1t - Imagine a small console squeezed into a small cabin! I guess the photos from the boatshow will help me make my mind up. Someone be a pet a take a few?

That's quite true. I just don't like it. I don't like Astroturfers either ;-)

The advantage of the canvas top is that on a nice day it folds away, whilst still offering the protection on the other 300 days a year! I'm not sure that carpet lining on the inside of a half open rib is better than canvas.

All for innovation, and think there is potential for more nice cabins / wheelhouses / sheltered consoles. Not quite convinced they've hit the mark, and my business head makes me sceptical they can be cheap enough to get you lot excited whilst still making them enough money to be viable.

I'm not a fan of enclosed helms either - luckily I realised that before I bought one! Patently the great thing about canvas is you only use it when the WX is totally sh1t - or in port.

If boats followed car development, canvas would be dead and there would be RIBs with hard tops that folded away into a locker

I don't see how the cabin one would work over an existing console as the whole console would have to be ripped to bits and your electrics and potentially fuel tanks moved... so you may as well at that point buy a new RIB

Pictures (just a rendering not a photo - so may not be the reality!) suggest it is accessed from the foredeck, with a "bonnet" lifting up on gas struts.



There are some huge consoles around which are accessible from the aft, and it might be possible. You make a good point though, on top of needing to be flexible enough to fit "every" hull width, layout etc, they also need to cope with different consoles, and those are all then customised with different screen, metalwork, helm positions etc. Even console mounted nav lights are going to require some extra effort, but if your fuel filler is on the side of the console then you are really going to have some fun!
