Boat Ride

I ran out to Anacapa Island with the family for a little diving. The kids got the gopro out for some dolphin footage and so I took a little of the boat ride. A little bumpy today, running in the low 20's mph to keep the ride mellow.

I like how you have your T top mounted to the center console, instead of the floor.
How's that working for you?
Any difficulty in lifting your former engine cover with the added weight of the top, radar, speakers, etc?
I know that you made that console shorter in length and wonder if you think that helped?

Boat Ride

I even have a life jacket on under my coat too

The console is bolted down now, it doesn't lift. I have the big hatch on the front for access below.

You should have seen the ride home, downhill under clear blue sky doing 30+mph

That should make you jealous

And today it's supposed to blow 30kts.
