I don't like new dash. Cabin door is nice.

Boat looks awesome!!! .... Reggie must read OSO because all the main gripes have been polished! Chit guys!!! boat does 106!!!! that is the biggest improvement! Imagine if it were slower! you guys would have Reggie's stones on a plate

IMO.. get rid of the dash paint and leave it simple....

The driver and passenger dash areas right down to the floor look cheap IMO...

Seats are fancier but are still to freakin low.

Have they always had a kill/tether cord on the passenger side?

no.

Pass side vs driver is unbalanced the way it looks from far away.

The dash was painted by Bozo the Clown, who also installed the guages, gear shifters and throttles.

Oh yeah, it was on his lunch break from Cig painting.

Dash needs a bit of reconfiguring...Good colors matching the Graphics.
If I had my say/buying one... I would ask to have the Speedo and tachs moved down and the Smart-Craft moved on top with a Garmin GPS next to it.
Other than that....more cup holders the better!
P.S. Not to shabby on the speed numbers either.

So Bozo's full time job is painting Cigarettes, and then moonlights during his lunch hour to paint Fountain dashes and installing their guages, gear shifters and throttles?

I didn't realize Bozo was so into boats? Did anyone see him at the Miami Boats Show? Or ever see him in any of the publications?

He must be around here on OSO?
Are you out there Bozo? Please let us know if your there?
