If your removing the old tubes to scrap them then myself I'd just cut them off about half an inch from where they are glued to the flange. Then you'll be able to see where they are glued on.
Have you tried a quote from Henshaws to supply and fit? Not sure but it could work out cheaper getting the boat to them rather than paying for delivery of the tubes and then another company to fit them.

update

OK, so far the tubes have been ordered from Mr T ( www.tidel.biz ) and should be here soon!! and will be fitted, I have part built my jockey seat but I then stumbled across XS Ribs with their "small console" which is fitted to their 4.6m model, I called them today and they will build and send me the mould for 295 + 65p&p to Ireland, I can do the stainless work myself and get a cushion made handy. Looks like a nice little unit, I have been told it will take between 3 and 4 weeks for me to get the unit, Have attached some pics to show ye all. I will post pics when stuff starts to arrive!

I will get some close up pics later.

I built a jockey seat from marine ply using your measurements but i made the console section wider, after which I stumbled across this console which as it happens are almost exactly what i built my ply console in fact its 10mm less on the width, i also measured the boat well, other than that i will just have to let ye know...anyway nothing an old angle grinder and a lick of paint cant fix


im 100% sure it will fit....hopefully!

I only ask because I contemplated replacing the console when I did mine but decided it would not fit in the location it should be fitted so didn't bother, you may find you lose an awful lot of deck space....

OK, Tubes have arrived and look great thanks to Mr T! the jockey seat is on the way from xs ribs. coming along nice now. I have a 40hp mariner with a
18" shaft, im thinking of cutting my transom down by 2" to allow me to fit my engine without having to sell it on, When the time comes to upgrade to a bigger engine and a longshaft i was thinking of getting one of those jack plates(or something similar) that will raise the engine by approx 2"...basically Im looking to cut a small section to lower the transom and fibre glass it to fit my current engine. pics attached!

Why don't you go for the bigger engine to start with? What size are you after?
