I have an 87 13' Sport. I raised the rear seat by putting it on top of the side rails. This gives me about 3 more inches of room ubder the rear seat. But now I beat up my shins on the steering wheel. I have seen photos on this site that shows the console on a 13'Super Sport or on the 40th Anniversary boat. Does anyone have the plans for the SuperSport console or the 40th Anniversary console. I also like the idea of getting the steering wheel more vertical. If no one has the plans, does anyone have the dimensions. I and my shins would apreciate any help.

You might want to check my old console out. It even gave me some storage.

I needed to replace the console on my 1983 sport and e-mailed whaler. They told me that all wood blueprints were given away. Also, if you buy or build a SS console, you will need to replace the starboard side board.

I was at a surplus store the other day and they had 6 of these in the back all lined up on a shelf. They were done in a very nice looking shiny varnish. I'm not sure if they were factory excess or something, or someone's knock off. They looked nice though.
I actually bought two of the side rails for my 88 13 foot at $20 a piece.

I was in the same boat (so to speak). When I restored my 72 I wanted to make a bit more storage. I made a "blank" out of cheap pine that I had in my shop. I made some adjustments until I got what I liked. Then bought the mahagony and re-did all the wood on the boat. Once I get this photopoint thing figured out I will add some more pics. (side rails and new power have been added since this pic)

I'm also in the same boat "so to speak" I just bought my first boat a 72 13' boston Whaler this July. We had a lovely summer but would love to have a back made for the rear seat. I would like to do something in mahogoney because the boat so sweet I don't really want to muck her up...Do you have any suggestions? I live on Peconic Bay, Long Island.

look for or buy directly what is called their "wrap around" railing. Has a back rest built in and has lower side rails. If you already have side rails, I would build something else. If no rails, this is sweet and is factory.

Try CMI Marine in Hingham, MA. They the OEM if Boston Whaler Boats and carry that wrap around seatback railing that Bigshot described. I believe the price is around $590 which seems a little pricey to me, but they are factory like BS said. Don't know if it comes w/wood for the seatback. Look back in previous discussions in the OEM Forum for their phone #.
