Any info concerning placement and installation of a CC in a 13 would be helpful. I am hoping to get a small fiberglass console out of a small flats boat to install, probably one from dolphin boats down in miami.
thanks

You might find Clark Robert's 11-foot CC Whaler interesting:

I have a homemade wood CC in my 13. Over the winter, I'm replacing it with one from:

I love the Center consol. I have a 54qt cooler with pad and flip back seat for the helm, another 54qt cooler with pad in front of the console for the front. Love the setup.

keltonkrew,
How'd you route the wires/cables to your center console on your 13'? I'd thought of going with a cc but didn't know if I could make the installation look clean enough if I had to just run them along the floor. Any pictures. Please e-mail them to me if possible. Thanks

I'll have to take some pics. Right now it has a homemade wood console that the previous owner put it. The steering cable exits the right of the console and goes down the gunwale on the right. Right now, the throttle, shift cable, etc run down the floor on the left. I'm going to try to re-route the cables to go down the center so they will have minimum exposure (go under the seat).

With them on the floor, it is not too bad though.
