    there are several consoles online you can buy at that size and as long you are going to make them for personal use, just make a mold off them. a mold will cost you about $1500 dollars for a company to make thats production ready. the consoles from that size mold will sell for about 350 each so you would have to sell several to start making a profit.

    try Bob Chester at Tiki Watersports in Key Largo Fl. They have several console molds of decent but not top drawer quality for small boats. I built one of them.
