not only do they look rediculous on that boat because they stick up so high but two it would be impossible for anyone to lay on that sunpad. that top gun that just sold at lipship, the grey one, had scoops facing the right way put in the right way and they still left room for a girl on the back.

That's not your average power plant in that boat.

Not to beat on ya, but do you think it is wise to make the wise remarks that you did about a boat and the owner of one, that you found listed in the very same message board as you posted your 'question' in? If you don't like it, buy it and turn them around to your liking. Somehow I doubt being able to lay on the pad was high on the priority list.

i duno but mayb he put them on for the clearance for the engines, but didnt want the added drag of the air scoops so used the side wiht less drag so he didnt have to buy a race hatch and still had a little use of the sundeck..... just my $.02

sorry to be offensive to anyone US

didnt mean to offend anyone here.... just trying to make the point that it didnt make any sense for him to do that. plus even if u had to do that, atleast the owner could have mounted lower so they dont stick up so high.


as i said before i really dont mean to be offensive... and if i hurt your feelings i am sorry
