If it's the pic in your post above, yep, it's the same (well, almost, but it's near enough the same) console they were fitting in 1978!

I think it would be safe to say that if you want to fit more than a wheel and a remotes box, might be worth looking at the bigger console!

Nope, THIS one isn't big enough, I ran out of room inside and it is a bit tight to work in without removing the batteries.....

Spiderweb - Thanks for the offer of a test run. Fairly confident this is the package I will go for and am going to Humber tomorrow to take a look at the boats.

Do you think there is enough power to pull a heavy (& bad) skier with 3 big adults on the boat?

Chatts 90 hp Tohatsu wil be ideal.We have 15 and 17 pitch aluminium props.A 16 pitch probably ideal.Rib is very responsive to throttle with either prop.Plenty of power to pull skier or wake board.

5.3 Ocean pro and Tohatsu TLDI 90 is a very good combination. It's what i have, cheap, light and very good fuel consumption. The 15in pitch from is a bit small, you will be hitting the rev limiter all the time. The 17in is a bit big. Try and get one with a 16in prop. Would recommend an anchor locker as i don't think they come as standard. good luck!!
