Oh good you did it.

Yup,
We've changed a mutation into a pure bred trawler.

I think it looks really good now and no visibility has been sacrificed. Making the eve or wheelhouse "brim" a little smaller would probably cap it off. PI.

Can we print off a copy and send it to the owner? If he has a good sense of humor he may even go in that direction. Appropriate fees will be forthcoming I would think. I'll let you handle the distribution thereof.

Hey! A couple of years ago I was looking at that Saltydog. It bit my lip and had it had a diesel a call on it would have been made, Large single gas makes it a candidate for a conversion to diesel which at the time I was considering.
A below market rig in good shape priced right that would fit in our 200 inches of rain boating country. Just wanted to know that a person who admires Manatees, could love this Uniflite.

OK, I'm learning here. The brim has been trimmed a bit here in this one, and it's only fair that I show the Eric inspired improvement to the wannabe window guys....also much more balanced looking. Now, to try the same ideas on my boat!

Yeah, I tried the same trick on my boat, but it doesn't seem to be working.

Very nice example, Max. It's one of those vessels that you just can't appreciate until she's cruising through the swamp. However, there was no such pre-fab thinking on these fine carpenter-built beauties below.

West Marine sells them. Recommend getting one size up than listed for your model.

Oh, and don't be a noob be sure to deflate it or remove it altogether when at anchor.

Be careful you don't cross thread it when putting it back on.

ROFL HAHAHAHAHA ...

I had to bring this thread back for this GB 49 example, just down the coast from me. However compromising to the GB's lines, I have to say that this owner did a decent job in matching the style of the boat. The windows, window treatments, and interior are GB like and comfortable. Since it's a one-owner boat since new, the owner must have loved his boat and did the mods to match his usage. The ad says he also removed and replaced the teak decks with the faux teak stuff.

There is no question he compromised the overall feel and look of the Grand Banks to some degree, but I think this is fully offset by the increased space, functionality and comfort the bridge provides. Given the price these days of Eisenglass & canvas enclosures I wouldn't be surprised if it cost less to make.
