Its a shame that the gps doesnt fit in the console would look alot nicer imhp.

Ian,

First boat!.....No experience apart from limited river and canal boating and Iv'e just seen the weather forecast! Thanks for the invite, but I will probably end up sitting in the boat in Bembridge Harbour, engine off and smiling to myself until I get the confidence up and the PB 2 ticket.

Your console looks good...nice and tight. Unfortunately the instrument positions on mine have been a little dictated as the compass hole was cut out and fitted before I had the chance to have an opinion, It didn't help that the Silva S15 cannot be flush mounted.

enjoy the blast at the weekend!

It Can -- Sikaflex it in, what i did was (and yes i did ask) cut the supplied mount and use the side bits, with the screws on, to make it hold itself in, under the console.
Then put a good healthy ring of Sikaflex round the nice big hole you have cut, and thats it.
Works ok, although am on my 3rd set? and no its not that hard to get out again, if need be, and the set is ok as well.

Cheers
Pete

You can flush mount an S15, they sell a pair of brackets that screw into the sides and tighten up to hold it in place.

Sorry, can't help it.

I would worry about the position of the waterproof floaty bit to put under the console first, and then place the instruments.

Sorry, I just wish I had a console like yours (green with envy).
Kit looks well laid out to me, and there is loads of space for the extras you will not be able to resist at some time ( fuel flow meter, stereo, auto pilot, cuddley toy etc.)
