RIB Consoles

Hi All,

I am looking at the feasibility of a boaty project, it will involve the need for a console, apart from Outhill boat builders and IBS boats, can anyone recomend a supplier of rib consoles please.

Many thanks

Stephen

Consoles

There has been lots of posts on here recently re consoles. Ones that I would consider include; Shakespeare ribs, Stevetheboat posts on here, you could try Roy at Osprey ribs, he posts on here under OSPREY RIBS, or Leeway Composites who also posts on here.

All good suggestions, I'd add Windsor Brothers(Ocean RIBs).
See Andy Hightowers build thread, plus any pics you can find on here of my Ocean. There is also an epic thread by Pete7 about putting this console in his Pac22 which is now owned by Jimbo.

Roy at Osprey will also supply cracking garden ornaments in yellow and grey.

The Ocean console is a real cracker, lots of internal space and protection from the elements at a very afordable price. Mine was bespoke as I had a reveal built in for my long legs (look at my Blue Venom ) thread. The only Achillies heel is that the front door is almost impossible to seal against water ingress and the fact that the console is so big it would look a little silly on anything smaller than a 6m

Thanks guys, lots of useful tips there.

I will let you know if I start to go down the project route although it won't be a RIB that I am doing this time.

Cheers

Stephen
