Very nice looking rib! I miss my old Optimax, the simplicity and the torque.

Looking at your first picture of your vessel directly from the side and focusing on the your dual cruise console. Do you get my point with regards to the wind screen? I think it would look a lot better if the screen was angled more towards the driver. I also think that the grab rail design can be improved - a lot.

Hi B-B,

I guess aesthetically it would look better angled, but it doesn't half give great protection from wind / rain / spray, the way it is. Haven't had a chance to really test the grab rail - hopefully won't have to!

Regards

Steve

I agree, just changing the angle wont do. The design would have to be improved as well and I would have added a lip on top of the screen and added protection on both sides. That said, I use ski goggles when I want extra protection from wind, rain or spray. Once you have tried goggles you will never go out again without them.

Get a gecko. You'll never use goggles again
