replacement interior for 17' whalers

I would like to get some opinions about either fiberglass or stainless steel replacement interiors for a 1969 17' Boston Whaler hull I own. I would rather not have the maintenance work associated with the wood interiors. Does anyone know any place to buy prefabricated replacements for a whaler hull, or do I need to go to a custom fabricator? I really like the versatility of the dual console design that whaler had a few years back. I believe they called the model a super sport. Any ideas, people to call or websites to check would be very much appreciated.

You might look into some of the "modular" boat manufactures such as Carolina Skiff. They have a large assortment and many sizes of consoles, as well as many other things that you might find useful.
If you are looking for original parts, I'd contact whaler for part numbers and then deal with Twin Cities and have them delivered to my door. This is the approach I used and must say I have been very pleased with my results. Good luck in your search...
