so for the fit and finish people out there what do you think of the seams on the backrest? Looks asymetrical to me....

and the center cushion has the same gathering loose look that everyone was aghast at with the T23 last fall...

F&F has never been a strong suit on the new boats. I remember when the 20 LSV was first introduced. The one at the Milwaukee boat show had such a bad mismatch in hatch shape and alignment on the sundeck it was almost comically bad.

What is the reasoning on single exhaust.. And are all 16 LSV s single or is it engine specific.

And is that a giant black handle sticking out to bang your shin on? It does not look as big on the other boat, but nonetheless, I would qualify anything sticking out like that to be a major fail.

When you see the floor, the seats and the sundeck all at the same time, the abundance of straight lines make me a little dizzy. I think it is just plain unpleasant to look at.

That center seat cushion would drive me nuts every second I was on the boat, even after I put a towel over it. How does that boat get signed off by QA like that?

can someone explain the purpose of this to me? Fetal position seating?

something weird about bow filler and bow backrest alignment on this one? Maybe it's an optical illusion.

To keep you from sliding into the hole when the rear facing backrest is up is my theory.

All the ribbed vinyl looks so retro! And the forward backrest makes zero sense!

I could be wrong, but I think the measured distance from the rear facing backrest to the observers backrest is 10 feet. It's BIG! :)

I think it's engine specific. Could be wrong, but every PCM I've ever seen is single exhaust.

Well haven't seen it in person but aren't all the 2016's raptor engines?

Oh and the TXi still has dual exhaust with the pcm. Thank god! :)

Anybody notice the surfgate actuators on the blue and white one? Looks like they switched from the electronic ram type to a hydraulic type like they did with the PW2. Has this been mentioned before and I'm just behind?

It looks like the same setup they now use on the Wedge.

Yes, PW2 = Power Wedge 2.

Bow cusion looks to me like one of the designers is a Transformers fan.

My wife would love the backrest facing the wrong way.

Can you elaborate? Where would she put her legs?
