I echo kingfisher regarding the batteries under the seat works well with the shelf on top. Plenty of storage above batteries and leaves the console open and super easy to toss stuff into and access without opening hatches. Super convenient. I also love the Simrad with the knob I’m constantly working the knob when running the glades.

I don’t blame EC for not quickly jumping on a new product. In my own field I got reps coming in all the time wanting me to try the latest and the greatest and I just laugh and tell them come back in 5 years then I’ll entertain it. Too many times the latest and greatest turned out to be a huge flop. I really hope this new product goes well because it’s good for everyone when stronger and better products come to market.
