Outhill consoles

I've got an outhill console on my boat and it looks fantastic however after a days wave jumping some crazing has appeared where your knees bash against it. Secondly don't ever be tempted to buy one with a curved front -they look good but they are vey impractical, I had to remove my throttle box and the only way to get to the nuts with a spanner was to stick your head under the seat with your arse up in the air! If the console had a flat front I would have put a hatch in there, but the side is'nt quite wide enough.

These are the standard fit side-by-side consoles fitted to the new XS-Ribs. Although you are thinking of the version without the seat, I'm sure they have the same dash layout as the version with the seat. Here's a pic from the other side of the dash layout. They have got a moulding for a compass, though.

Barnet Marine will make you a stainless steel windscreen/grabrail for it as well if you need one.

Thanks for the pic swginn, you've earnt a green blob . That has just made up my mind to order one. I quite like the compass moulding. It will mean it should be far enough away from electrics I fit to not interfear.

one other thing. Do you find you get full throttle OK with that control box and the compass moulding? (I have the same control box to fit)

I don't know, this is just a pic from the website, I've got a single width console with side-mount throttle. I'm sure if you give Laurence Lock at Barnet Marine an e-mail (info@ribs.co.uk) he'll be able to find out for you.
