Here is what I'm putting in my 13' in January. Not "factory" but suited to MY needs.

I don't care for how that console is gonna bolt down. Reason being the 13's floor has a valley. you will need to shim the console or it will not hold up(or down:).

Also try your local Carolina Skiff dealer. I think on a low gunnel boat like the 13 & 15, etc a console with a windshield looks too tall. Plus that winshield is as useless as ###s on a bull. Grab that railing too hard and you'll take the console with you:) Just my $.02 from rigging up a skiff.

I have a wood CC on it now (previous owner). It is shimmed up in the center with a drain hole going from front to back. It has a windshield. It looks a little tall, but not bad. This CC is about the same measurements on mine already, I just don't like the way the wood one was put together.

I agree the windshield is not much use, but it shields my depth finder and other stuff I put on the top.

I'll be glad to look at other options, so far this is the one that seems to fit my needs best. If you have any links to other consoles, I'd appreciate it as I haven't bought anything yet.

If height is right....ok. Try a local Carolina dealer and see what they have. marine surplus is always great but not sure what you have near you. Kinda expensive to ship those things.

appreciate the feedback. Even though this is not my post, I've gotten some good info to go on.

Thanks
