Figuring out where I want this console. This is the current plan:

I would definitely go side console.  I have had both.  Much more room in a side console.

 You do know that the old lap strakes made by Bob had a version with the console on the side all the way forward to the front deck. This opened up the entire cockpit and the anglers were able to jump around while fighting big fish. Tried to find a picture of one but no luck, there was one one this website??🔎Best I can find.

That's Dinner Key launch...was there many times back in the early 70's when we'd head out to Stiltsville in the middle of the night to go bug hunting..and hang lights on my buddy's skiff and shrimp all night.....of course that was .back when you could ;)

Thanks for the post....great memories....BTW, I think I might have the same year trailer :)

I did decide on the side console and am re rigging everything now. Hopefully the boat will be water ready by next weekend.

When the day comes to dig out the 25 year old fuel tank on my MA17, I'll be doing the same.......the boat will ride fine with the tabs trimmed....but, I like the fact you have alot of room...I'd love to put a Capt's Chair in the port forward for passengers.....it would be super comfortable....
