Default What fairing do you guys think I should go with????

We got the fairing material cut and Chart and I grabbed a scrap and added it to the top of the windshield and we can not figure out what way looks best. What do you guys think.

First it is low. This is a little more stream lined and will help lift the air up and over me we think.

This way we lifted it up high. A lot of people mentioned in our last thread that the fairing was to low. We tried to raise it up but ran into a bunch of other issues so we kept the height were it was. HOWEVER by puting this lip up top like it is in this picure it does make the window look higher, and no other problems were noticed.

If it is a tie then my girl decides

I always liked the fairing to continue straight out and not have that little lip at all....but that just my opinion.

#2 ,Blended in on the sides. Jon, my cat has a lip and it really helps put the air over the boat ,so your stuff, towels, hats,coolies,etc.don't blow around as much, if it rains it goes over me (down to about 25 mph.) ps. Your boat looks completely 'new style'!!
