Default maybe making her a sit down...what do ya think?

was just going threw old threds last nite..and found the one with the badddddd sit down int. now we who have our boats know they r great but we stand a bit tall in the helm....and helll I am only 5'7''....so thinking a bad azz sit down poker run int would be nice. By now you may relize that this is Rocky and my boat is not going anyware...P.S just put offshore threw hull water pick-ups and sea strainers on her.

Uhhh, HELL YAH! I really like the sitdown boats. Wallin (or was it Mange) did an awesome sitdown boat. B-stubb's boat looks like a good seating position and the Martian and Carribian OB boats all came out really nice too. My knees are hammered so sit down is pretty appealing to me.

Think Helledin will give us a discount if we buy two of them?

I'll call you soon Rock. It's been too long! You going down to LBGP this weekend?

All good here. I hope all is well with you too!

I realy cant go down. Mom just passed away, so I need to get some stuff in order befor I go bavk to work...going to take a week off and go to Havasu and just float...real fast. I have decided that an update on my boat will be a good project for me to keep me sane for a while. I have a lot of ideas that are'nt too costly to make mine supper bad..Take care Sean, give me a call when u are free from the tax time..

The opnly issue with the sit down is to make sure you put in PLENTY of padding.

Your back will thank you later.

But yes. Sit downs are awesome.

I think its a great idea. Not enough freeboard in these 28's, might as well embrace it.

The only other thought is to do the drop down floor like on the new 28s , I have the abillity to that ,but there are some very bad azz sit down seats to be had, I was on ppi's web site last nite, cool stuff. plus I am redoing the helm and pasenger dash, the whole cokpit will have upulstry including the helm.I also have some sheets of silver carbonfiber that I am useing on the dash. There is a place here in SO CAl that stocks every type of ruber flooring out ther, I got me a 10'x8' of silver dimond plate rubber flooring ...free ....well it was a gift from the film industry ...my job.I hope to start my face lift soon and I will post pics.
