My idea for a SAFEBOAT 25'

I have been playing with doing a 25' SAFEBOAT, but doing some heavy modifications. What do you guys think?

Love it. The deck is so small - this will open it up nicely.

You're just having way too much fun at work.

Looks like a good plan. Never seen one in person but there doesn't seem to be much deck space on the safe boats. That opens it up.

Yeah, i do! this would add 50% to the deck and make it a much easier boat to work single handed.

Yeah the factory design was not well thought out. One of my local fire departments bought one and found out the hard way there is not enough room to put a person on a backboard. Your renderings look much more useful.

Yeah, you need to put them across the beam using the dips in the tubes, but then it is really hard to get in and out of the boat!
