By double stick what do you mean - velcro or a latch?

Its almost like a putty, sticky yet doesnt dry out, the PO must have put it there... but still works.

Got it - how deep and long is that ski locker?

Ive heard some guys dont like the distance between the seat and the wheel on the heat, but It sounds to me like a spacer would fix that.

THis is what I mean by bins in the engine compartment.

These fiberglass bins are a pretty nice place to store all kinds of stuff.
This space is otherwise wasted.

Batteries are mounted behind the back seat.

That's one sexy engine bay pic

Why do you prefer belly tank over side tanks? More simple to fill? Weight balance?

If you haven't guessed my perspectives are from where I boat, definitely not a lake. I didn't like the side saddle tanks because they are (were) tabbed into the hull, not the best design for the lateral forces experienced in the chop, center of gravity is not as good as a belly tank either. How did mine hold up in 3 years, fine but I could a bit of delamination of the tabs beginning. I definitely took it easier on that boat compared to a true offshore design, no sense in pushing it...too much $$$.

Thanks.

Weight /balace/ CG/ less plumbing

they rarely drain equally and a dual fill is a pain in the A at a gas stop.

UD- The ski locker is plenty long for all my life vests, anchor, ropes, flares, bumpers, everything. I have nothing under the bench seat and the only thing I keep in the nose is the long arse oar I have and a boat hook. The seat is fine for me, but I am 5 6 When I am sitting down, the wheel is too far away for me actually lol. I just stand all day. Been in the Army 10 years now, so standing is no issue for me.

Hopefully you were pointing to this one

http://www.offshoreonly.com/classifi...o42049-en.html

When I have enough money, I will have two boats, one which the wife won't be complaining about being too much performance and the other will be another Lavey. It really excels in ALL areas, especially in the rough, on Lake Travis, you won't even feel it. Plus just think of the $$$ you'll save on shipping the boat from Dallas to Austin!
