Chuck, you need seats like the ones Nortech put in Catastrophes CC and a giant beer cooler like his too.

A pump out head for the little girls would also be high on the option list.

I think trip Merc 300s would be the best power. You'll save almost 350lbs over the Verados.

Thanks for all of the replies so far. I probably should have started with the items that I already had decided on and asked, what am I missing. With that said here is a brief list of the specs so far, radar arch with cloth top,underwater lighting, and accent lighting in the cabin, kicking stereo system, Garmin 5212 touchscreen GPS,refrigerator,front bolsters,monster gauges,carbon fiber on the seating,Myco trailer with scooter rack. Some of the items I'm thinking about are the tv with DVD for the kids down below, spot lights on the front leading edge of the arch(remote controlled), I like the idea of extra speakers and lighting under the arch. I don't think the a/c or the radar are needed for my type of use. So the question is now, what else is a MUST.

Why the hard top vs the canvas. I'm thinking I will want the sun sometimes?

What does Alec have for seating. The boat will have drop out bolsters at the helm, and divided seats in the rear. I was going to go with bolsters across the back, but it seems like the will look goofy in the boat with how high they will sit.

I'd take Yamahas over either....and no way I'd put 2 strokes on a CC ever again.

I have a Yamaha 225 4 stroke on my 22' CC, and at idle, you can barely tell when it's running. No smoke, no noise, no oil.
