Have to agree with going with less. Like others, it all ends up in the floor of rough days anyway. Besides, park next to a cruiser buddy and use his frig and a/c!

This is off Tres's site. Doesnt look like it is going anywhere. Not that I want one but I think it can be done.

You keep preaching that, but in reality....

Steve1 I agree, but there is some things that just plain do not belong in my opinion in a twin stagger 1200 HP boat.

It my not fall out like some of the others I have owned, but it still may not survive in the long term. Anyway my .02 in what I drive.

Cannot wait to get on the water cold today here !

The ones that really run them don't have any of that stuff. This whole topic, for those that have been doing this for a while, is moot. If you have an Offshore boat that is capable of running at speed in the rough, AND YOU DO IT, none of that junk lives. If you have a crusier cabin treat it as such, just remember if you get caught up "in the moment" the damage done is hard to describe or repair.

If your cabinet doors, tv's, microwaves, wetbars, a/c units ect. are living, you have a good feel for the boats limitations and that's a very good thing, but you ain't running hard.

And GL why do you continually bring up these "reality" topics ? Freak'n KILLJOY Whats next a " Should Real Hotrods Have Innerliner's" thread
