That is pretty neat. I wonder if the top is strong enough to tow a skier/wakeboarder? You'd have a retractable tower.

Looks like something you would see in the next James Bond movie. Pretty neat. Can probally lower the top and use as a submarine. Sweet.

No 8.1 as an option? Darn, that could have been my next purchase. \:D

Did anyone check out the photos on the website? Photos

Check out the bottom right picture. You can turn your sedan into a coupe.

I had wondered about doing something similar to my pontoon. It would be nice if I could get the weight down.

Kinda reminds me of the boat used in the jungle boat ride at Disneyland.

FR, from the helm position, it looks like they built a boat around a jet ski.

Yep. aka...the "African Jet Queen". :rolleyes: ;\)

Hope to heck noone hits the "drop-top" switch while underway....although, it'd surely make for a nice and quiet, yet "claustrophobic", workbench area.

An aft located center pod is the traditional helm for these harbor cruisers. This one adds to the tradition with a sub-roof opening that allows one to cruise top down with just two sitting and driving in a rumble seat style set-up. Its pictured on the web site in the lower right corner photo.
