Personally I like "Slab Fronted" as it gives you a large flat area to play with for fitting toys. One of the problems I had with BP was shoehorning all the bits into the available space. The Ribcraft Pacific console at the time had a break 2/3rds of the way up the front face, which may have enhanced the aesthetics, but made it a bugger to fit 2 8"plotters to. The console is now available without the break, to aid fitting large plotters etc.

For sure a very nice console but nothing new as a concept. Here is a photo of Nauti Buoy in 2007. Martini II & Never Enough have the same.

It says new Osprey console, not "revolutionary new console design unlike anything seen before".

That's my interpretation anyway...

Looks nice, like the idea by someone of having the front as a locker of some thoughts, the suicide seat is a bit old hat in my huble opinion, what about having two versions one with a locker in front and one with suicide seat option.

A small glovebox would be useful or a shellf to stick bits and bobs on, and a grab rail around the top is really usefull.

I do love the fact the front opens up to get at rigging, one thing that is a pain in the head, back and arse on my Cobra is I cant get at rigging without bending various ways and then its a tight squeeze to get at stuff.
