Nice looking boat. Does that tall canopy affect handling in high cross winds?

cross winds

To be perfectly honest having had the T.Top installed has not affected the boats characteristics in any way, except for one positive thing that I have noticed.
The front of the canopy has a small downward angle which during acceleration creates downward forces,so the bow drops virtually instantly.
It sort of acts like a plane wing or a spoiler on a car bringing the front of the boat down.
My boat is actually a little heavy at the stern with the bench seat and 2 passengers sitting,but the problem with bow rise seems to have been eliminated .

Note to Codders.
Hi Cod,yes it is the scouse fella from a couple of years ago.......nice to see you still around !

there is something about the picture that just doesn't look real - like it is a really good 3d render? anyone else think that?

Looks like increased contrast and probably a touch of unsharp masking. Both can be done in-camera in most higher end cameras nowadays. Photoshop if your camera won't do it.
