Default Nordic Heat open bow question

Looking at the 28 heat open bow. I've never ridden in one but I was told recently that the wind/air coming thru the open bow can be real annoying especially at high speeds. Anyone have the skinny on this? Thanks

CB-BLR is the resident authority on the open bow heat and has the coolest one I've seen and he has put tons of time and money into testing and modding his ride.

Im not sure any open cabin bowrider would be any different.

lots of wind, but a bow cover takes care of it.

I have a Hallett 270 open bow , and yes the wind rushing through the cabin is pretty intense , fortunately mine has two small doors up front that you can close !
