    Default The waiting game

    Just paid for our new baby today, just sucks that there's not open water yet. Any body else in the same "boat"? What have you guys found you like/hate about these? Its a 1875 XS with 200hp merc. I think I gonna love/hate putting gas in it. And whats the difference between a 3 bow or 2 bow topper?

    Thanks.

    If you are referring to the canvas top, the 3 bow type is much better because it will keep the front portion of the top stretched tighter giving you more head room. Most 2 bow tops look like they are slanted from the windshield back.
    BTW, Nice boat.

    Yes I was referring to the canvas, and thanks for the advice I'm 6'6" and I can use all the headroom I can get.

    Your height will be a good tidbit of information to give the canvas shop as they can make the interior height whatever you desire. I'm 6'4" and I went with a 6' interior height on mine and find it perfect.

    Nice boat, you're gonna love it!

    A three bow will provide more cover than the two bow.
