Added deep interior bucket for other essentials in the middle section.
The top of the console is 45 inches tall. The height would vary within a few inches depending on the size of the person. I am six feet tall and 45 inches feels good to me. I also put openings on the sides if you go down to one knee and need something to keep you stable. I plan on pouring in foam this weekend.

Mixed results with the foam. I used 2 gallons of 2 pound foam and only got halfway under the sole. I think it was too cold.

I see you have a Boga. A Gear Keeper is a good means to retain possession.

Waiting to heat the hull up... with the sun. What foam did you use?

Sealed the underside of the deck and glued it on. Rub rails next.
