After I win the lottery I'm going to order one and make them make me a full windshield with a new dimensions mini tower on it.

I'd love to see it!

Maybe router a channel in the fiberglass for the rubber and glass to sit down in. Meaning do the bottom of the glass "frameless".



But I really don't mind the way it is now. Especially with the bimini mount. That ND tower photoshop sure looks good too. I guess what I'm saying is I really like this boat!

Subjective argument about the tower, I for one do not mind the look of it but it is not quite right. They've rushed it. I could be overanalysing but it looks as though they were on the money with the angle of what I'll call the main bar but couldn't get the required strength without the additional 'scaffolding'. This I think gives it the confused look and perhaps it's little too spaghetti like appearance. Given the design cues I think there are a number of options possible. I do not think a four post design ahead of the screen is one of those.

Yea, I know, Ive made my stand on towers, but these days with the kids and friends my skylon has been up more than down....so I'm willing to concede a tower.......but only a mini, and that is under protest!

Just to set the record straight, I love the boat. I'd like to see a full windshield but I have yet to sit in one so I'll hold judgement until I get to see one in person.

Boat house had theirs covered up, but did see the one at Cincinnati MC yesterday. I agree with you that the boat would look much much better with a full windshield, but on the flip side the boat is so bad *** that you just about overlook that flaw. It could be lived with once you do physically see it.

We'll get to see the Boat House Marine ProStar during their show the weekend of January 18th. I can see myself spending a lot of time in that boat that day.

I am with you captain, I love the new boat and Hey I might never even ski in a course but I LOVE nice things like the new MC PS 2014 and how every thing works when you want it to work but I will only ever have the full height tower, but hey sometimes the HQ listens to their punters....and they may build a true MC tower....

Captain, i was skeptical about the windshield as well, but after seeing it in person and sitting in the boat at Midwest Mastercraft yesterday it really looks good on the boat. Can't wait to ski behind it!
