Thank You The bolsters are made with Alcantara so it will work fine with water. The only downside is that when it rains they get soaked But i have also a set of custom made vinyl covers for when it’s really bad weather

Here are some fun pictures and (maybe correct) info that Ive heard from the previous owners in Finland and Sweden

From when the boat was used as a race boat, it was called Cheap Thrills and the driver and team was:
CHEAP THRILLS OFFSHORE RACING TEAM
Ray "Grabber" Grabowski
Steve Fussell
Rich Schieferstein

The "home made" vents

I had some problems with the measurements from the blueprint for the headers. It wasn’t exactly the same when we finally received the headers
[ATTACH=CONFIG]511222[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]511223[/ATTACH]

So the easiest way to make it work was to modify the heads exhaust ports.
