yon big redbay that willk cadged for ERR had a nice wee shelf at the front of the console just about the right size for some sunnies, or a pen etc. Had a nice lip so stuff would stay put in ok conditions and a drain slot in the lip so water didn't pool.

Does you console hinge up at the front then ?

As I stated "this is actually quite a common design for a number of consoles in the market such as Technohull and Scorpion."

For me, the Osprey Discovery console is best looking console that I've come across and a part of the reason why I repeat buy. It's look is rugged and purposeful, but it's not overly practical. The rest of the Osprey consoles are not to my taste.

I'm not keen on the RC single console. It's not dissimilar to a service station bin/paper dispenser IMV.

The Parker offering on Martini II is smart.

Please don't get me wrong I do like your console and pleased to see that one can sit in it and not just have a narrow shelf to rest your bum on like on some well known brands.

At speed this type is quite safe as you have side supports with good grab handles . This console seat cannot be described as a suicide seat

The yellow console does not hinge up as it consists of two separate compartments. Access via hatch on backrest to the electrics etc and seat lid lifts for storage of gear etc. we prefer to keep these separate

I like it as well. You have ticked the boxes that I was looking to tick when I went for an Outhill console. The mods that I had to do to make that item half acceptable
+1 for the option of a 'glovebox', fitting something similar is on the to do list for Jianna, has been for a few years now
If that console had been available when Jianna was in the making I would have had one.
Mmm, any thoughts on pricing yet.......

Looks really good, as people have said before it ticks all the boxes we'd looked for. Large flat surfaces are essential these days as 12"+ plotters become more common. Now come on...who's going to be the first to fit a Garmin 8015 to one?
The flat area at the top will be very useful for sunglasses etc, you could copy hightower's little railings to keep stuff from falling off!


+1 to the glove box too, we have one on ITR and it is really useful. We fitted a cigarette lighter in there last year so it now has two USBs in there for charging phones which is really neat.
