Thanks I have a new revolutionPD side console to mount now and if my project works I will think about fabricating a SC later.I have a Lone Star similar to the one pictured above. Mine is King Commander with the side steering unit as shown. I have found they are very difficult to even find one in a Lone Star ad. It's an option listed and none are pictured. I would think you might be better off fabricating one if you have the skills.
Could you please post a picture of your Lone Star King Commander with SC. I’m working on one and am interested in how this was accomplished. Mine has a poorly executed non-factory forward/front helm that I’d like to replace.I have a Lone Star similar to the one pictured above. Mine is King Commander with the side steering unit as shown.

I have the RPD 1422 side console, gray, without the porta pot, at the beam I intend to mount it will not cross mid-line. I have the steering cable to go with 9.9 Honda remote I pulled off my 13‘ whaler ( upgraded to 30hp, not for the grandkids anymore, and not a trawler anymore). Also need to lift the motor 6 inches Because of long shaft. Have the material to do that and lightly beef up transom. Sea Nymph R 14 A, ( car topper from ~1960, Aero manufacturer Syracuse, IN) max load 700 pounds, max hp 12hp. Hope to post before, during and after pictures over next few weeks.
For what it's worth, you might want to search on Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist for a side console.
I scan regularly, and often get them for $50-$100. I keep several on hand so I have them as needed. The ones out of pontoons are sometimes nice, too, but are often bigger. I cut them down sometimes, if needed.
Guys around here often buy a jon and remove the console, and switch to a tiller for duck hunting.
Here is one I just installed in a 16' Starcraft Mariner. Not a super wide boat, but enough for that little console.

No, I didn't paint the boat or console or dress it up. I decided I wasn't going to keep it, so I just hooked everything up, tested it and sold as-is.
A guy in his 20's bought it and LOVES the boat. He and his buddies are virtually living on it this summer. Nice to see someone who really uses their boat, instead of just letting it sit and rot.
He was talking about doing a vinyl wrap. If he does, I hope he sends pics. It's a solid boat. He can do a lot with that canvas.
