Question What do you wish your boat had???

Just what the question said...what do you wish your boat had on it? I know when i had the Scarab i always wanted a built in cooler.....so i did the next best thing and made a special spot for it under the back seat....out of the way and holds a full days brews!
Next on my list was when i was doing the dash...the thing had the old style glass tube fuses....so i changed them all out and installed the modern type blade style....

So what else is out there on the new boats that you wish the engineers thought of back then? Or what is out there that your planning on installing or having done to yours?

Ya, what kitten said.

10 more feet, a second engine, and more horsepower.

Realistically, I'd be happy with mechanical indicators, a little more horsepower and hydraulic steering. That would keep me happy for a few months.
