I'll pop down to Codprawn's boat and splash a mould off one of his jockey pods when he's not looking, then get a friendly local laminator to knock out a pair of seats during his lunch break - yours for 600

Can't believe nobody's thought of that one before

Got the console screwed and sikaflexed in tonight. Will need to tidy up and glass in the inside later in the week to finish off and start running the cabling through the trunk.
It's starting to look the part now.
I have some parts on order now to start the stainless work, CAD drawing and payment away for the light pole at the rear (thanks Top Banana for the tip) and the altered motor mount plates for the transom. Hightower has sent me some plates, haven't had time to open it so far but the cheque is on the way to pay for the postage with thanks. They won't go to waste but I got too good a deal on a pole made up complete, I need some plates for other reinforcing and stainless bits that I will make up myself so they will get used on the boat on various places including reinforcing the outboard mount and making up various little plates and parts.
I'll need to some serious research soon on seats and start looking at decking. I used diamond treadmaster last time glued down, may use the lighter pattern version this time as I won't be carrying lots of dive cylinders all the time on this boat.

I am waiting for Rick to get prices for pads and stainless parts to complete.
It is an option depending on what he comes back with.
