Temporary Console

9 posts in this topic

Has anyone ever added a temporary passenger console in a boat. If yes, how did you attach it? As we look at used boats, I'm in a constant battle with my wife about the "necessity" of a passenger console for the few days a year she actually rides in it smile

Good question! There are 2 simple answers: make her drive, or leave her at home. Either way, you will probably wind up in the dog house. To me, it sounds like a nice challenge to make something up that looks nice and works well. It wouldn't be all that hard to make something, just be sure to use aluminum and stainless steel for all the brackets and hardware.

You may want to buy one with dule console and remove the one side.Iam thinking something like a fishhawk. its best not to make her hate it befor you hit the water. she looks at it like your Equal co owners. or so I have learnd the hard way.

While watching the movie "Gladiator" last night, the answer came to me. I could make a fancy Greek or Roman battle shield and say "here, hold this up in front of your face, I'll let you know when we're at the spot" smile

Could just give her a helmet with a sheild on it? smirk

Why not get either two consoles or a full console boat? I have a single console and when I go bigger in a few years I would like the full console. I have a small child so I think it would be nicer with that.

Awesome movie, I love the soundtrack !! Anyway, you could fabricate something to hold a console on floor temporarily then leave it at home when not in use.

BTW, happy birthday Bonefish !!!

    • I'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?

    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
