    Gorgeous. Do I see a teak toe rail? I love touches like that on modern boats.

    We have the standard center console also. The lo-profile with the raised tilt-helm actually has the steering wheel at the same height for stand up steering. Like anything else, just a different way to spend more money:)

    Standard hatches will have carbon in them, just not clear coated. For clear coat, we used car-show visual quality CF.

    The toe rail isn't teak (or even wood). Its a composite "wood grain" film that is molded into the deck. No varnish work here!

    Thanks!

    Hey, classic look with modern tech, doesn't hurt my feelings! Looks great either way.

    Comparing the weight on the non carbon hatch to the carbon hatch was a big difference. Can't wait to pop the hatches on mine and see that show CF.
