Yesterday on the Woody Boater facebook page someone commented that. “Amazes me that people want to set on top of the seats & look over the windscreen. I prefer to set down in the seats. It looks better” mmmmmm, there’s an interesting question to throw out to the citizens of Woody Boaterville. Is it OK? I mean, should we always sit inside of the boat?
Yes, from a safety standpoint. And yes, if you are sitting on a place that does not support your fat you know what. We get that. Danneberg goes off the deep end regarding this issue. Especially since he has replaced so many seat backs. But what about a boat like our 25 Sportsman. I mean even the factory shows its OK.
And I can attest that this is a natural place to sit. What about the engine hatch? Dangerous? Maybe if there is an explosion. But it does have a cushion on it.
I personally sit up when driving, maybe a bit dorky, but I like the breeze, and the Boatress needs to see since she sits low. Also our engine has a bit, of blow by and it can get a little stinky up there. In certain boats the windshield drops down which completely removes the reason to sit up? So whats your opinion on the matter? Is it a boat by boat thing? Is it just wrong?
