At 6'6" you will not have to worry about hitting your head on the cabin roof of a 382. I am 6'4" and the roof is at about mid chest level. So there is no danger of not seeing it and whacking your head. The only two problems with a low roof are putting on your pants and trying to sit in the head. I figure a 30 - 40 knot cruise and a smooth ride through 3 footers are well worth those small issues. Also, if you trailer, gas and storage are a lot cheaper. Of course that doesn't count the F350 I just bought. But a man needs a truck anyway.... right?
