Re: 270 Vantage vs. Grady Freedom

There WILL be warranty problems no matter which you buy. 2) If you want to put your hands on a Vantage and are planning to spend $200K, then t...

Re: DIY ideas for forward facing seats on 210 Outrage

I will check to see if these might work. Not sure if the inside of the hull wall is flat or curved in the area of the forward seating, but I'll check tomorrow.
