have any of you guys tried using one at night? Is there enough room to stand up and drive during docking or is it "all hands on deck"

hatches removed and no seatbelts shouldnt be much different than havin your legs tucked deep under a console and a big lifejacket on...

I have heard the cockpits do give a "false sense of security" but without a/c i doubt id have the hatches closed!

Joe it has full interior and a cabin with opposing lounges and a toilet and the cockpit is completely done "side panels, led lighting, kick ..s stereo and full scuba and 5 point harness.

Waterboy you lose the sense of speed from the lack of wind in your face wouldnt say a false security

as far as pics this is the best I got

That"s what I'm talking about Skater bro!!! Tops blow off at 110mph. Looks like they just jumped out of a plane. Kind of funny looking at that point. See you in Key West!!
