Re: Nice Carbon Fiber Head!

There is no leaving the seat up or down problems there. I wonder if that spray nozzle pictured is any good? There are sure lots that are not.

I like the grab handles for holding your butt down to the bowl as the boat launches off the faces of massive waves

Gimbled head...

I hope they've got that sorted, certainly looks like the boat could roll of a wave and castrate someone sitting down reading the newspaper...

Gimbaled? That seems to create a whole new series of problems.

Re: Nice Carbon Fiber Head!

Although Ima gurl I'm gonna say that does NOT look safe or civil for a man to sit on.

There is a foot pump to flush water through the head - I like that! I guess the hose and nozzle is to clean up the mess for men who miss because they don't want to hurt themselves sitting down. Who am I kidding, men make a mess even with a big head in a house that isn't moving.
