I would be surprised if the back seat had to be purchased as an option, it is likely just removable. The ski racks will probably be an additional charge. And probably not a small charge.

I'm just speculating of course. And I might be surprised.

Obviously, I missed his comment. Perhaps it will be a split seat with walk through in the center.

In one of the quotes, they did refer to "the back seats" so it sounds like it is split....

split back seats will surely save on the vinyl for sure!

NOT a fan of the "Pickle Spork"! Need to ditch the "Pickle Spork" and add two analog speedos!

Kudos on the open/closed bow -- very innovative!

How do you save 400lbs over the previous model? Weigh it with an all aluminium 6.2 and make the racks and all seats with the exception of driver and observer optional !

A couple of interesting things after watching the Marcus Brown video.

1. Friggin' glove compartment right in front of the steering wheel. Brilliant.

2. Nice work on the dash. I'm sure the digital stuff will break and be a pain, but the speed control screen is intuitive and the view without the huge gauge cluster is excellent.

3. Sleeve locks on the bimini top. Perfect.

4. Observer's folding seat back slides flat and becomes a step to the bow. Wow!

5. Hinged bow cover for storage access. Impressive. Removing bow cover (does not compute).

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

For those interested in what the back seats could look like, Marcus Brown posted this over on BoS:

Also, this setup was seen as a rear ballast option for trickers at Nationals...bench press bar weights?


Also, MTS should be an option again.
