I could see that screen coming off the first time you stuff your boat and whacking ya in the face.

If it rains stick a geko on ya 'ead. Whats the point in having an open boat and then 'iding behind a screen.

I suppose its like Motor bikes and cars.

IMHO,the one on the left looks better but having been out on an avon 620 with one,I wouldnt have one-cater for some grab handles!
The one on the right I think would be more usable,although personally,I think for good weather that a large screen takes away some of the feeling of going fast.

Although you've made........

.......your decision, I'd go for the one with the screen. I prefer the look of the other, however the screen does offer great protection from the wind and rain. Even when ribbing in nice weather ones eyes tend to stream when at full pelt. Further, if you're standing whilst at the helm, the screen and bar give you and your pax something to hold onto.
Buy it & Use it, then sell it and buy something bigger
