Bummer, looks like they will not be in Miami. It's a pretty awesome layout even without the "wider" part. I like it. The staggared inboard diesel setup is pretty awesome from the line drawings. I'd like to see some bilge pics.

I just have to wonder how well it well it will hold together in rougher water.

Don't see how you get into the wider section, what looks like a step on the outside does not protrude beyond the "wall", if that is what you climb up on in the water, then you have to hold the edge and try to slip around the wall while stepping up, bad, very bad design. If that is not a step of some sort, then what purpose does it serve, other than to get wet with salt water for all the hydraulics that are used to raise and lower it?

From what I'm told they will be there and we have an appointment to see it.

Thought the still shot looked cool. Watched the video, pass.

Looks like a nautical version of the family mini-camper.
