Console tidy/bag

I remember seeing advertised a console bag type thing - think they were with Bembridge but can't find them any more.

Basically want something to attach to the console to put binoculars - vhf - flares etc into - must be easily accessible.....

Anyone know of any suppliers???

maybe I should make the effort to get to southampton show - still got some stuff left to buy....

I reckon you should make the effort to get to Guernsey first!

I doubt it would be that hard to make one, and that would give you the advantage that you could have it fit exactly, with pockets where you want them etc.

You could specify what material you wanted (see if someone has an old boat cover that's knackered perhaps) and with a little planning and an industrial sewing machine you could sew a pouch, with maybe some elastic in the front to hold it closed. Then bolt it to the console with some big washers, and bob's your uncle.

Just don't tell my mother I know how to use a sewing machine!

Codders try trousers they may suit you better!

I'd looked at doing something similar for our boat with netting instead of bags, may resist getting all horrible and mildewy etc.

you could get one of those rope bags used on saily yachts as seen in the plastimo catalogue.

They consist of one of those round watertight inspection hatches with a small bag attached to the inside edge. Flush mount it in the side of your console and bobs your uncle, a nice handy, watertight storage for small easily lost items!

like this in fact...

http://www.plastimo.com/catalogue/in...ngID=1&catid=6

edit: bugger link doesn't work properly. Go to deck plates > inspection hatches

Product details are as follows:
27351 - ABS deck plate with storage bag, classic screw type, 156mm

codders- dont waste you hard earn cash-- get some strong velcro and use an old laptop carrier - then you can take eveything with you when you leave the boat tied up. Did you invite the press to the launching??- is it going national?

Stowage Problems.

Although both the Point 4 and lap top carrier are almost what I want, how about just some sort of stowage bag stuck to the tubes Port & Starboard, astern of the Bench Seat. Anyone come across anything like that?
