New feature on boat builder?

It shows what percent of the time that people select a given option. I don't recall seeing this before

I think it is pretty cool. You can see how unique your boat/color combination is

I found it interesting that 66% of people choose a BTS windshield

I saw that too. Wonder why it's up there? Neat to see what is picked most often. Maybe this can help folks that turn their boats pretty often plan for resale by seeing what the majority want/don't want.

^Helpful for resale, for those seeking to differentiate, and for dealers thinking about spec buying their showroom floors.

Well after looking at this on the boat builder its safe to say that my boat is one of a kind. I like it.

However, one thing that I have learned from resale is that its not always about the colors its more about the condition of the boat itself. People understand that when they are buying a used boat that they aren't picking everything they want. If they were then they would buy a brand new boat. As long as your not crazy with the colors (i.e. skittles boat) then you will be fine especially if the boat is well kept and looks good.

I have the 6.2l and I haven't had one issue with needing more power and they don't make the 7.4l in ops

Skittles boat is dying a slow death on only inboards....
