Default Moving console to front of boat





Currently have 2070 Xpress, open floor plan with the console at the back by the bench seat. Likely going to move it to right behind the front deck. Anyone know of any issues that I will have with performance or anything. Probably be a rough ride on those choppy days but is there anything else that I am not thinking of?

I did this last year on my 20ft War Eagle. The ride changed a little, but not too bad. Just have to trim motor up a bit on choppy days. You will need longer steering cables and shifter cables. Also, all the wiring that goes to the motor and battery has to be lengthened. I'm happy with the way it turned out.

My boat came with the console up front but I wouldn’t change it. Especially running in the dark. Like bad dog said. Just work your blind around it. Here’s a few progress pics on how we worked it in around our new hard side blind. Boat is 1652.
