I told my Dad one time, if you EVER find a fishing rod on my boat:

1) It was put there as a joke
2) That person is a walking deadman

The only time I fished, I cranked up a blown big block in a cove and a big ugly fish jumped out of the water and landed on the bow of my low slung jet boat! Almost crapped my pants! That was it for me and fish

OK I get it, you don't want a center console. Crist, most women don't bich as much as you do. I'm confused why a guy who doesn't like center consoles has more posts on a center console thread than anyone else. Even The Joker who has a vested interest in CCs does not have as many posts on this thread as you. Give it a rest. What do you think, if too many people buy CCs eliminator will stop making cats?

Well I enjoy foremost being on the water! I do like to fish and find that performacne boats are rather 1 dimensional! I bought my first perfomance boat in 1992 and sold my last Cigarette in 2003. When I think about a CC, I think about running offshore to the gulf steam, which is probably farther offshore than most performance boaters unlesss they have been to the Bahamas. Isn't great that we can have this kind of debate about our toy's! In the end we are all very lucky!

Power play made a twin I/O center console a few years back and I believe Cigarette did also.

If this trend continues we'll see a 60' Hatteras CC, with full-beam master suite and walk-in shower under the console...


I admire Joker for building one with a 7' beam. Balls of steel!

You need to go for a ride in Alec's Nor Tech Doug. One of the fastest accelerating boats I have ever driven. Sucker will toss your azz over the transom if you're not hanging on

Eats Simcoe water like its rumble strips too.
