Hi pete,

I believe itís a three piece moulding that was used for the console. Menai Marine in North Wales are the manufacturers producing them to order. http://www.menaimarine.biz/

I see from the website that they have a single stand up type console that looks good as well. I like the forward seat position. How much for the console Bob, PM me if you like.

Tim,
The manufacturer has told me that the console will be fitted by placing it into the rib and then glassing it in internally to get the exact contours of the deck. The console is then removed and the additional glassing will be trimmed to give a 60mm wide internal flange from where it can be fixed in the usual way. This method should produce nice tidy lines on the outside of the console where it meets the deck.
I will post more pics when this happens.

Bob.

Hi all,
I have just picked up the new console from Menai marine and i am very happy with it, still got to fit the custom backrest yet though.
Next thing to do is pluck up the courage to start cutting big holes in it for the engine controls and gauges etc. What do you experts think is the best way to do it...hole saw and jig saw i presume?
