The boat was USCG registered which is why there is the stainless plate on the starboard side in the engine compartment. Also, they should have bow filler cushions...
Did the windshield provide much protection when seated? I prefer to be out of the wind, was actually looking at that boat on CL, but this thread says the windshield doesn't offer much protection?

I'll clarify my comment on not noticing much difference between a fairing 288 and a windshield 288. I don't believe I sat while running either boat. I always stand when running (this was at LOTO). I also don't think I sat my feet down in the lower part of the footwell and leaned back to get out of the wind. So at 5'11" standing on the cockpit floor, I didn't notice any additional protection from the windshield. Hope this helps.

Both the windshield and windscreen provide some relief from the wind if you are sitting. The wind is deflected up from both, so it is just a matter of the position of your head above the level of the windscreen or windshield. The benefit of the windshield is transparency to see through it, so theoretically you could get your eyes below to top rim. The downside is your vision is somewhat impaired compared to no glass or framing.
