Hi Chewy,

I don't know how much the console was as it had already been installed when I bought the boat.

Can't imagine it was cheap though.

Only criticism is that the seat base is a little wide and rubs on the inside of your legs when standing.

I'll have to have a look at making one, least it'll fit where the original was then and will be the right size.

I have been told by someone who trains the special forces ,it is offset due to weight distribution to counteract the twist from the prop this is why they centre the outboard on the transom.So i guess if you centre the console you offset the outboard as you do most other ribs
