Define "untouched". I do agree that there is a percentage of performance boats with cabin that don't get used for sleeping or overnight usage.

What I truly like is the storage use. No need to worry about stuff being secured or flying out of the boat while at speed. Besides, I am not going to ask the female guest to lean over the side.

I think alot of its about location. As someone mentioned earlier, its nice on the great lakes because we overnight alot (Kelleys Island, Put In Bay, Etc). I couldnt imagine not having a cabin until I spent a bunch of time in the Ft Myers Beach area. I think the ultimate boat down there would be a big center console. Party all day, go back to the dock and take a garden hose to the whole thing and pass out in the back yard.

Not a bad way to get lots of females on your ride Scot.

Ahh, the voice of reason

This boat I had NT build some speakers that plug into the rear deck that I usually placed on the sunpad, another remote was at the rear, was great so I didnt have to crank up and wear the battery down...next one Ill have an outlet close to the swim platform for the blender..
I want a remote like that on my Boat! LMAO!

No cabin needed for my type of boating. I never sleep on the boat and party with others who have cruisers. I have a porta-potti for emergencies and a ton of storage. I also have no microwaves to fall out, counters to crack or mildew to clean when we get real NJ water.
