You guys are jumping the gun... It looks great in person. And besides that... the tower is optional. The boat has ski racks and the bimini comes off the wind shield. I can't really see a huge need for the tower.

We always jump the gun based on the only available picture thats out there... We know the tower is optional but is it a good looking option?

All towers are ugly, IMO ( ) but that one looks.................. strange?

The windshield looks OK. It wouldn't keep me from buying the boat, but I'd hope that it is strong enough to bear some weight with that cantilever design.

Is that windshield frame white, or is it just the lighting? I think it would look better chromed, or blacked out. Overall, a sharp looking boat.

Looks to be satin aluminum like most other MC windshields. And I agree.
