Yep, There's one at my marina, and from looking closely, they make a fine, quality boat.

Cuda, I believe they make it the std way also. I personally like the way they look, throw a little paint on their, and Im sure it will take away from that humped up section. One of the finest center console at the Miami show, I was really impressed.
