Carbon Comes to Consoles…..

When Phil Evans did my boat  last year, for the first time we tried the flat top console idea.  It’s turned out to be very good in practice.

At the time that Phil was doing it we were hoping to get a sheet of carbon in place of the tufnol panel.  It’s just a cosmetic thing – we’re right at the Centre of Gravity here and the weight is not going to matter a pop.  I think in a modern boat this is going to look great !

In David Williamson’s photo I notice that the slots have been lined wit a metal sleeve, which we don’t need on tufnol…..I still think it looks terrific!
