Please let me know what you think,any improvments let me know [/quote] Console looks odd at the starboard side of the helmsman - is there an empty seat there with not cushion?

Looks like you've got a single console for a helm with a double behind it for the navigator etc. Guess the electronic toys will be at this position - will you always have a 2nd competent person on boat to use these? otherwise they'll be useless to the helm...

Hi polwart , engine controls are going on the starboard side on the part that is right of the helmsman .Most of the toys will be up front but the will be a music player with ipod and a 2nd vhf behind daughter wants her own area

I would be tempted to reverse the seating arrangement and put a large screen up front. I love mine for that as it is nice in cold weather to have the wind whiped over you plus you can talk to whoever is on the boat, point things out, argue etc

mmm... so the helmsman can only leave his seat to port? if he comes alongside a pontoon or other boat on the startboard side he has to walk all the way round the console to tie up. Maybe thats not an issue - I guess some bigger boats have this issue with double jockeys at the front - it just struck me as awkward when on a smaller boat... ...I think I'd want to have tried that set up out before experimenting with serious cash.

He'd be better off with an alloy frame like on the Atlantic's. That way you can still have the throttles in that postion but have accessto starboard.
The layout is like a Lifeboat that Ribcraft fitted out.

I am interested in the planned use for the new craft, It is 5.85 and has three seats which does seem a low number on board and in that arrangement may restrict options later or even on re sale. Having just put together a Ribtec 585 with twin double jockeys and a forward consul seat I have more room, but I do like the look of it

No I like the style. But bear in mind that the lifeboat will never be out with just a helmsman on board (or a helmsman and a couple of clueless friends) whereas you might be. Chewy is suggesting getting rid of the box to your right and putting the throttle on some sort of bracket which is what the RNLI do. The rest of us manage with the throttle on the console so I'm not sure its strictly necessary anyway! If 3 seats is enough for your intended use then the general layout is good and the 'extra console' should provide loads of storage - something often lacking on smaller ribs.
