Console and steering wheel!
Don't you fall out of the back when you gun the throttle?

Many moons ago I used an SR4 with a tiller steer Yam 30 on the back. Was dinghy rescue, so the increased manoeverability with the tiller was awesome, and I was soooooo glad that it had those transom braces to tuck my feet under! Also gives a load of useable deck space!

Form memory it had one of those yottie winch handle holders on the transom to hold a handheld VHF.

Assuming there isn't one already in the right place, some form of handhold on the toobs would be a good start. The rest of the toys are going to depend what you do with it......

Maybe some tie-down points on the deck to stop all your kit from leaping on top of you when you open up the throttle.

You could fit some eye-bolts in the existing fixings for the original console.

I fitted one of these on my jaffa. Works really well. Going to fit them to the other safety boats too now
