I'm not positive, but I think the reason they got away from doing the retractable tops, was due to the hypothetical scenario of getting trapped inside if the boat were to roll over. If the power source that opens & closes the top were to somehow be lost, there was no way to manually open it underwater IF I am remembering correctly.

If you aren't right, you can bet to be called out on it....

That scenario sounds scary as sh*t.

Ballastic has always been one of my favorites. Great lines.

Cool, having an emergency hatch in the tunnel would make it much less of a concern.

I know that boat was purpose built but is there any kind of cabin or storage under the deck? I got a pair of 365 Mags laying around from my Scarab wonder how that would work, be good competition for the MTI that was for sale with the 502 Mags in it
