Securing the console

hi,

I have a Ribeye A600 with the rails in the deck, into which the console and seats attach to. The console took a battering last time I was out and now while it is still attached to the rails at the back, the front of the console can be lifted up away from the deck. I am assuming that what ever slides into the deck grooves has come away/sheered at the front.

Looking for advice on the best way to ensure this doesn't come away again. Bolts would be difficult as there is no access under the deck, rivets maybe, or fibre glass it to the floor?

Cheers, Andy

The console bolts into the rails. Either the bolts have snapped, the rail is damaged or the bolts have pulled through the fibreglass.

You need to stick your head in and have a look.

You can bolt, sikaflex and screw your console down to make it stronger.

console fastening

You could add toggle bolts to help secure it down. I ended up cutting an inspection port through the deck in my boat inside the console. It allowed me to add some bigger backing plates and fasten the console a bit more securely.

Good luck with it.
