jockey console - where to get USA

Looking to see what small 1 or 2 person jockeys are out there that can be shipped to the US. I have only been able to find the Mercury ones. Looking to put it on a 14' small RIB.

any help would be appreciated.

14ft is tiny for putting in a jockey console. Most would use a tiller engine for this maximize usable space.

Have you tried ribcraft? They are right down the way from you in MA and make a small jockey for their 4.8M rib. They might be willing to sell you one.

Look up Outhill they are based in Warwickshire in the UK and make consoles for many ribs. I have had 3 Avons with their consoles the first two were 4 metre Ribs, about 13 feet, so they should have something that will fit.

I think Boyd said he had some, didn't he? You can get his username in the North American forum.

And I agree with Jack; you'll lose a lot of deck space with a jockey/console. Might look at a bar-type helm mount for a small inflatable and go with a low bench or bucket seat.

I love outhills products and they have a nice small jockey. They won't ship to the US.
