I am with the majority, I like a full cabin with some frills, for me that is a large bed, ac, enclosed head, a place to store a long weekend's worth of clothes, good lighting, coffee maker and fridge. TV's not that important since we only use the cabin to sleep and change. For some two types of boats might work. But being a great lake boater there are so many harbor towns to choose from that we usually put in at one and then go some where else. It is not always that easy to find a hotel close to the marina and without a car that becomes difficult. There would also be the double expense of having to pay for a dock rental and a hotel. I also really enjoy waking up making a cup of coffee and walking around the docks in the early morning.

Defineately a Cabin
in the 33 Outlaw
we have a bed, a/c, sink and tv.
Here in Iowa there's not really any place close we can
boat that we'd be able to stay at a hotel with the boat docked down in the water, so when we do go to the lake for the weekend we have someplace to sleep, and brush our teeth!!!!!

Forgot about the coffee maker too and maybe bring the Starbucks latte machine on the next poker run.Thanks Mrs P for reminding me.
