tried out the Dauntless 13 today, 50 deg. and a stiff breeze so my wife wasn't very comfortable and it was a short maiden voyage but I was impressed. Nice chop on the lake, and we both came back dry, every thing about the boat feels solid, little trim adjustment and it planes out and scoots. One problem a lot of the lakes I fish don't have docks so my fishing partners push off and hop on the bow. I can picture some pretty funny results but probably can't talk them into it too often, what I was wondering is if I could cut the bowrail by the uprights on the bow and take that piece out would the rest of it still be solid enough to do its job.

If you removed it completely, you would probably end up with a safer rig. Bowrails encourage many to allow kids to hang off the front and the rails also make many required operations by boaters more difficult. Take it off and see how things go; you can always put it back on.
