Searider 5.4 consoleHi,

Hi,

I'm after a console for my SR5.4. The boat didn't come with one and after reading about them been quite low I'm on the look out for a new one.
So far I've found the following that I like:

Humbers Sports Console and Deluxe Jockey,
Outhills JC4TA, JC14T and JC3T.

Who else makes consoles that would fit this boat and what will fit?

All I need is a single maybe twin jockey with space to fit a sounder and radio.

Thanks

Phill

I had a JC4TA in my SR5.4.

Nice big console with some storage forward and a 90/100 ish litre fuel tank under the seat.

Looking at the photo I would say mine does have the raised plank. How will this affect things?

How much was your console if you don't mind me asking? Its shinier than a very shiny thing!

The console in the photos was removed before I bought the boat.

Thanks

That's the original console, so will have the raised floor.

I think the guy that sold that boat is now (or was) selling the console and a-frame on ebay unless I am mistaken.

Unless you want to go rebuilding the deck (i.e. flattening the raised section) to allow easy mounting of another console, you are probably going to have to modify the new console so it will fit over the raised deck where it overlaps.

If it were me, I think I'd probably try to get an original console, and make a box for the bottom to raise it. You could then add a fuel tank to the bottom box. it would also mean the original console would be higher so more likely to stay dry in the event you like stuffing your SR like Nos does

So all I need to do to fit an Outhill console would be make the floor level?
I'm looking at doing a fair bt of work to it so don't mind levelling the floor if thats what it takes.

Any ideas on the best set up for self draining?

I was thinking of the usual trunks or having a hole that goes striaght into the flooding hull below the deck so the water drains through that?

From what I have heard, making the floor level is no small job, so well made are the SRs. But yes, with a level floor, you can buy a console with a flange and screw it down, which with the addition of enough sealant, should hold it firm as long as enough screws are used.

Another option if you ar ein no rush is to wait for a console on ebay from Barnet Marine, they come up occasionally at reasonable prices for not quite perfect mouldings, but would need to be glassed in.

For the self draining, I'd use the original format of trunks to be honest. At some point you or a future owner might want to block the self draining hull for better out of the hole performance, and you'll kick yourself.

How do you level the floor? Build it up or chop the plank out and rebuild it?

Have you got a link for the Barnet Marine consoles?

How much difference to out of the hole performance does the flooding hull make?
