    I like the wide leg design as well...till a certain height and then it looks weird i'll have to find out what Clearance I need for what power option I go with

    The rear legs on mine were leaking badly into the rear compartment, so I had the legs cut and remounted so it fit flush on the back deck. Moved the platform forward about 8" and gave me more room to trim the motor with the JP all the way up. Win-win for my rig.

    Looks cool. Does the motor get in the way when poling?

    I was hoping to gain some room in the rear with a newer style .....makes sense for a tunnel boat that's gonna be poled 100% of the time.
    I fish a guy in front and back and gonna have to add a trolling motor (not looking forward to putting a puck on my pretty deck)

    Rick, you are in Jax right? Go check out mainmade studios on beach blvd. He has done two platforms for me (one on my waterman) and he does a killer job. He was also cheaper than anywhere else. His name is David and hes a cool dude. He can do anything with metal

    It does not. It might for a shorter person, but I'm 6'5", and use a 20' pole and I've never had an issue.
