Post New PD Side Console Build
I had PD build an 1854 TDX Side Console with their newly designed hunt deck and full floor option. KP and the gang have been awesome throughout the build. I just received these pictures from them today. It’s coming together nicely!

That looks like a TDX with an SBX hybrid floor. Is it foam filled like the SBX?

It’s a traditional flush floor with no flotation or foam. They re-engineered their floor bracing to provide the strength they wanted, but without the added weight of the SBX design.

Prodrive hasn't had a traditional flush floor...How's the drain built?

No, they haven’t. This is one of the first. KP said it was okay to post the pictures- he just hasn’t marketed them yet. I am not sure how the drainage is set up. I see the normal drainage holes, but I am not sure how the water will flow. I am assuming the floor stops back by the transom and exits that way. When I was buying the boat KP told me about the new floor, but I’ve never seen one from PD. I’ll post pictures when I get it.

10-4, I was wondering if it was going to be a self bail or not. I understand it is not and still need a bilge pump. I like the flush floor over the traditional X series for clean up, this looks like a good move for them. When I got my SBX, I talked about an X with the same style floor to save weight and rise of the floor. I like it...

SBX is a nice boat man- I looked hard at it. It’s probably the safest aluminum hull (duck boat) built for big water.

Shit, I think they put gator glUbe on mine. I'm going to have to redo it. Said it was G2 but acts like G6 (I know that don't exist)

Post Re: New PD Side Console Build
Just to give you an idea the type of guy KP is- he offered to me on Friday to paint the boat a new grass pattern that was just approved but had never been done yet. He sent me a couple of pictures and I told him to go for it. He then called me back an hour later saying the boat was already painted Nat Gear- what I ordered. He said since he offered to me the grass pattern he would pay to have the boat sanded and painted the new camo pattern. I obviously told him the Nat Gear would be fine- BUT MAN- that was stand up move by KP.

I like the color you chose for your hydroturf too, looks real good with that camo pattern
