The lip on the top will make a huge difference. I had the 12" windshield on my Velocity, I didn't like the look so I cut most of the bottom off keeping only about 4" plus the lip or "flip" as I hear others call it. It is the only thing that keeps the blast of wind hitting you in the face. I've been on boats with larger fairings without the flip where you just get blasted. I also shot the windshield white so it looks much better now.

#2, makes the boat look bigger and more "offshore"

Wow I did not think it would be this lopsided. This was kind of just a after thought but I had to agree with others about the wind in the face so this was our solution. Man you can not imagine how much better this has turned out with the two of us constantly bouncing ideas off one another and incorporating them into the project. Plus all the suggestions from the OSO crew

Anyone else?

J-can you get me an overall shot? The side shot doesn't help to get a feel for the boat.

Tough to say Cord. I think that we have one shot from farther back. Maybe I can get one that is better tomarrow with another camera?

Cord: The shop was a, ah, ah, a little full, and some items were blocking the bow. And we don't have any pictures of the whole boat; it's just too massive to fit in a camera The closest we have is attached. Hope it works for you.

Now from that angle it looks too low. Almost seems to disappear. If only you could get me a quarter shot from the bow...
