My passengers are big fans of the heater and shower. I also second the bow ballast. Don't skimp now because you'll regret it next year just ask me!

Heated Drivers Seat / Hot Water Shower. Very popular on my VTX last year!! Have the dealer instal the shower not the factory though.They put the temp controls onder the middle of the back seat under that plastic pan by the trans. PITA to get at.

I am surprised depth gauges are not standard, or at least one of those options that a dealer makes standard on their boats. Maybe the lakes in MN are a little bit 'bumpier' than elsewhere!

Depth gage and bow ballast, other than that, it's looking good!!

I just bought one as well. Mine is at the dealer and I will wait a month or so to pick it up. All lakes are frozen in my area for another month. I saved enough to buy one they already had but am wishing it had bow ballast. Depth finder is a must. Enjoy!

i ordered mine without the heated seat (even though i thought it would be great) because of discussions with friends that had that option and that said it was not very effective.
