RIB Consoles

Hi All,

I am looking at the feasibility of a boaty project, it will involve the need for a console, apart from Outhill boat builders and IBS boats, can anyone recomend a supplier of rib consoles please.

Many thanks

Stephen

Consoles

There has been lots of posts on here recently re consoles. Ones that I would consider include; Shakespeare ribs, Stevetheboat posts on here, you could try Roy at Osprey ribs, he posts on here under OSPREY RIBS, or Leeway Composites who also posts on here.

All good suggestions, I'd add Windsor Brothers(Ocean RIBs).
See Andy Hightowers build thread, plus any pics you can find on here of my Ocean. There is also an epic thread by Pete7 about putting this console in his Pac22 which is now owned by Jimbo.

Roy at Osprey will also supply cracking garden ornaments in yellow and grey.

The Ocean console is a real cracker, lots of internal space and protection from the elements at a very afordable price. Mine was bespoke as I had a reveal built in for my long legs (look at my Blue Venom ) thread. The only Achillies heel is that the front door is almost impossible to seal against water ingress and the fact that the console is so big it would look a little silly on anything smaller than a 6m

Thanks guys, lots of useful tips there.

I will let you know if I start to go down the project route although it won't be a RIB that I am doing this time.

Cheers

Stephen

I think having him and his boat around all the time to protect your boat is a little over the top, and anyway he'd never keep up with you using that small engine on that boat with all the extra gear on board.

Very funny, I had not thought of it like that! I was actually referring to the console/canopy arrangement

I thought you were talking about a sidearm.

The T-top is probably custom made at a fairly high price (marine stainless welders fetch a pretty high fee.)

Taylor Made has (I think) a sort of modular system that looks less finished, but is loads cheaper than custom.

If your boat is on the small side, you can get one of these...

Actualy, I do like the Canopy arrangement, but can't help wondering how much extra fuel you'd use pushing it through the air.

I am not sure either, but for my project I am not to concerned about fuel as the boat will not be traveling far, but it will be on station for long periods possibly which is why I am looking at these canopy/console arrangements., I am also thinking it might be possible to add side curtains in really crud weather, possibly a removable/stowable system might be achievable? I know a good local welder who is reasonably priced and I know a girl who is a whizz at canvas work.

Rain is Horizontal at 30 knotts and you won't get any protection from those canopies at that speed. Perhaps you should consider an umbrella for the slow stuff.

I tried to show Pete7's umbrella that he used in Brittany, but the Jackeens have cleared all their attatchments.
