Did the console look something like on this one?

This particular Pacific 22 was found on the Baltic sea in July 2002 just off the Polish coast by a Polish fishing vessel . They were coming back to port having had a bad day and then this what a catch. I am told it fell overboard from HMS Lanchaster .

Pete the finished product looks very profesional job. Well done.

The only thing I have to say is if you checked with the manufaturers to see if you will compromise hull integridy by opening it up?? May be you shouldn't have done it as you say.
But then again it may be OK time will tell. Welldone!!

Good Job

Pete

Excellent Job, I did the same thing to our old humber years ago with the help of Alan Priddy, Made the boat so much better to handle etc, With stringers like they put in those boats your hull strenght will not be effected, they are seriously strong boats.

Julian Hi, yes remeber seeing your rib on the channel island cruise 95 I think. We thought you either mad or very brave to attempt it then, never thought I would be doing one.

Andre, wish one would fall over board in front of me. Says something for the boat if it survives going over the side of a RN destroyer! Wonder what the weather was like at the time, dread to think actually.

Manos, haven't actually changed anything as there is already two inspeciton hatches under the standard Pacific console. The main bulkhead between the engine and forward compartment is still in tact, just has a great big fuel tank sat in front of it. Although I am waiting for a warning from Crazyhorse to say someting about CZ curves (what ever they are) or RCD since I have doubled the fuel tank capacity and altered the moments, L1 x W1 = L2 x W2 if I remember correctly, but physics was a long time ago.

To all, thanks for the compliments, I have to admit that going down to the boat in January and laying more and more GRP was soul destroying, didn't do much for my jeans either, but geting the console in was a big boost. Naturally I fitted the steering wheel just so I could go "brum, brum". Quite impressed by the Vetus stuff, well made and managed to get 8% off, from the Port Solent chandlers because the order was quite big, so deals can be done.
