I agree I'm going to try and put two jockey seats side by side behind the consul and can you recommend what is best for cleaning the tubes as I've been told TFR but any more recommendations would be appreciated.

Ive used tfr with green scoring pads worked ok but was a bit patchy(probably me not rubing enough)plenty on here use fairy power spray which seams to look good.
I put 2 consoles side byside in my tornado was a bit tight but was more sociable for passengers

You mean the one just on the ring road before you get to the Eleventh Earl? Used to drive past that all the time!

Used to go out with a bar maid there in the mid 1970s before it was renamed & went all upmarket lol, Tornado boats had there roots not too far away from there about a mile or so further up the road around about the same time .

+1 for fairy power spray with green scouring pads, works a treat on the white tubes on our Revenger, stubborn stains may need neat spray leaving on for a few minutes, then respray and plenty of elbow grease, works a treat

Btw, It is better not to fix your boat with a band over the tubes....they don't like it.
Fix it to the trailer at the bow eye and at the transom eyes....
