Default eliminator 380 eagle

Is this boat set up for more of a seated driving position than the more typical bolster? Thanks for any info.

I've spent some time in the 380 and it was most definitely more comfortable sitting than standing. Driving the boat standing felt very awkward.

This one could be a deal: http://yachtauctions.com/detail.asp?stockNo=19084

Odd that it has 700's, they weren't out in 06 when the boat was built.

Sit down, I got a ride in one with 525's on LOTO, very nice ride, great power in the midrange. For a guy that is 6'3" 225 lbs, tha cabin was tight!

I've only been on bolster type boats. How does the sitting position change the feel of the ride, vision, etc. ? Thanks again for any info.

The boat I was in had a gen, AC, and was a canopy boat (whick I think is the only way they come) I did not get to drive it, but from the back seat I could see more than what I am used to. The boat rode very flat! I think I have a couple pics....

The 380 is mainly a sit down boat. Its a stepped hull so it is designed to run flatter the a non stepped hull.
