I have no earthly idea but I’d hate to be in it if it starts hailing. It would be deafening!

actually from what I've found out they were paneled inside with mahogany paneling and insolation between the aluminum and the paneling.. so maybe not so bad !! lol

If you had a new f150, an airstream trailer and that boat all hooked together, they would call you the aluminator!

That's certainly going to be the hit of the boat shows! Wonder how she will handle weather.

the second link provided by Shaugh from his post has a YouTube video and a description of how his went through rough weather.. seems to have handled it easily ..

The windows are pretty large, so I don't think it will be much different than a Bimini top as far as getting warm. Very nice in the fall and winter. Beach camping...etc... I've wanted to do a hardtop for years but can never find one that wasn't robbery.

They have their limitations for fishing but the cool factor is off the charts.
