Default 26 redline

Good comments about the windshield and the ability get to the deck.
These two items were not an issue for me on our ride.
The windshield for a 5'8" guy like myself was not an issue. For someone like Bob who is a pretty good size fellow I can see how the wind might hit him different.
For the taller folks you could cut down the pedistals a couple of inches and there should be no issue.
I understand what was meant about the comment about getting to the deck, however after sitting in the boat after 4 visits and riding in the boat this was not an issue at all.
The boats the I have been used to have had a shorter wind screen or a place on the dash to step over to the deck.
The Redline has a taller deck making it easier to get in the cabin. Very easy to step from the seat the the side of the boat with no problem. Would never have figured this out had I not gone for a ride.
You don't have to get on your hands and knees to get through the door to the cabin which for us older guys (middle aged) is NICE!!!!!!!!!!!.
Go take a look... you will be very impressed.

Wow what a great thread! The new write up was just as good as the 1st. As we all wonder what and how different combos will work and run and all that crap, thats pretty much been answered by the combos that have rolled out of beautiful harpersville AL. So as soon as one of you daddy war bucks steps up or forks over some "K" (you know who you are) we will all have to wait. Hurry up someone!
I'm all fired up now Iv'e read this. I think i'll pull the RPM out of the garage and run it.Its a beautiful so.cal day.
P.S. Steve is now accepting stimulious funds to spike the boating comunity. Thanks Again Steve.
