My understanding is that the hatch in the front part of the boat is there for access to the bow...from the cabin...so you don't have to climb over the windshield.

I completely agree with the engine hatches though...it would be a pain to work on the engines (if it was needed) while on the water.

Thats got to be an issue at poker runs.... theres no way to step over the windshield, so if standing on the bow of the boat,,, your suck...only way to get in and out of the thing is from the back..... Skaters and MTis provide enough width to walk around the windshield and step to the back of the seating area.....

do u guys agree this is a poor design?...eliminator 27/28/36 Speedsters also impossible to get into from the bow.....i love DCBs , but its just something ive noticed n been wanting to ask others.......
being able to get into and out of any Catarmaran from the bow in a quick response should be necessary at all times...

what do u guys think?
Wow!!! Really!!??? If I could afford a M-35 how to climb onto the front of it would be the least of my concerns, I'm sure I could figure something out. I would love to own a DCB but a little out of my price range. Well if anyone out there is tired of not being able to climb over thier windshield in their DCB you can give it to me and I promise I will never complain about it

Getting in and out of the engine compartments on the water is not a big deal at, been there done that. Piece of cake for me.
