With a full wrap around windscreen, most people are leary to use the windscreen as a handle when they step up on the deck. Once you reallize that you are not going to break the windsceen, it is really very easy to jump up on the deck.
Thanks for the explanation. Very nice set-up!

With the room in the motor compartment one would have to wonder how this in my opinion best single engine cat would do with a Merc 1075 #6 package. That is a very very nice boat.

For only a few thousand more, you can have a Merc 1200.

I think theres room for two of these, you figure out how to get them in there and I will drive it, I can see the headlines now, "26' RPM Hits 200mph" and if twins won't fit just slap the 1850hp single in her...that should at least put her in the 170mph range.

Whats the worst that could happen...

Hola been a long time. I'll be in Havasu this coming weekend. Staying at the Heat in those Infirno suites, got renters in the casa untill the end of this month. Adult weekend and about 14 of us. I'm sure the bar above my room at the Heat we will light up Friday and Saturday night. I'll find ya if your out their. Kinda serious about the Redline and the 1075 package. 26 Redline and my 38 would be a nice pair.

Here is a picture. I drove the boat to 109.2. The customer may have had it faster, not sure.
