Honda Engine Cowling Modification?

Noticed this whilst on Holiday recently.

Does anyone know if Honda are fitting seats to there outboards now or is this just a neat idea to ensure the cowling doesn't come off at speed.

Saw this on holiday also noticed no radios, gps on our boat (40ft) and of the twelve boats on the island only one had a radio aerial !

trust me it wasn't. he was sat there for an hour!

They did seem quite suprised when they got back and that prop was missing though. Think they lost it when they docked because I was sitting behind the "captain" and all the rev's where the same at WOT.

Made me smile
