As far as I know they sell exclusively through the dealers. Try the one in Nashville Illinois or Clinton IL for a good price. Raymonds also carries them at LOTO.

If you want to contact the plant call Joe at 810-794-4888 and he can explain your options.

Actually the bow speedo is easier to see at speed since you look into the horizon rather than down at the dash. It is also quite a conversation starter at the dock, everyone is shocked to see it there. Passengers can ride up there at speed on dead flat water no problem but even a 1 ft wake can bounce them around so you need to be alone out on inland waterways to ride up there.

Been a fun boat but something 6 ft bigger and 20 MPH faster is in the cards.

Your math sucks since an Active Thunder is only 5 feet bigger!

I want a new TG.
