Default Center Console Enclosure Picture Request.

People with all types of center console enclosures. Spray shield + Gull Wing, Custom work, or any other "system"...

Please (please) post up pics and/or information on how/why you did what you did.

Thank you (very much),
Pete

Heres two pics of mine, it is the standard Sea Hunt setup cost $400 for the gull wings. The boat came with the standard console wrap but I would assume its about the same price. I wouldn't be without them now that I have them. Definitely extends the boating season, gotta like that.

Here are a couple of pics (I apologize if they're not sized right this is my 1st time posting pics). Makes a tremendous difference, and I've kept them on the entire season. Some nice features and added touches by the custom shop I used are: polycarb in front (as clear as glass), strata for other panels (can fold to the side of the console and the sides can roll up or be removed, stamoid, snaps and turnbuckle (?) type fasteners to under the gunwale, mesh vent zipper opening on the top of the front panel, flap cut-outs for where the rods under the gunwale and the rear corners of the side curtains for where my outrodders go, and the custom t-bag thing I had done at the same time. My only reservation is that when I brought one of the side curtains back to the shop to resew a seam, I was not vigilant in how I kept and transported the side panel which I left in my car for a week, so it now has waves in it. Anyone know if there's a way to get rid of the waves? The panel/strata itself is still perfectly clear, as it's less than 1 year old and I'm vigilant in terms of keeping the strata polished and protected with the recommended Imar stuff.

I believe you have seen mine but here you go...Mark
Mine is not a full encloser but works great fishing and running in the winter months off of NC. The material is Weblon very easy to clean at the end of the day. I would suggest you wrap the curtains around the outside of the metal work this will seal off any unwanted breeze and then you can store things like jackets between the curtains and the console.




I would also suggest you do a sketch of what you want. If you don't they will be done the way the curtain shop wants to do them not the way you might want them done. Been there done that on another boat.....

I thought this would make it easier. NOW you're making it harder... Keep it coming. I have orders from the Mrs. : "ENCLOSURE" (So we can keep her in the water longer).

Go figure. :D

Those curtains on the sailfish look great and are the best way to go. The wings on the side are nice but you still have to duck behind them and if you need to go to the front you unhook them and can still wet. The 7 panel enclosure goes more down the side so people can stand more comfortably around the console or behind the leaning post without getting wet and if you have to go up front they still stop some of the breeze and spray that might come from the side. Really nice enclosure on that Sailfish.

New this year from Mike at Shore Canvas in Denton, MD. 5 panels, perfect for reducing my salt intake.

You guys rock! Keep it coming. I am starting to know the style I like the best, but I'm not going to post it yet since I don't want to influence my wife's preference. But THANK YOU for all the pics so far!!!

Thanks Chuck. The difference in terms of shelter is amazing, as you know. I hope you're enjoying your new Southport, and we'll get around to fishing together someday someway.
