Why soft top? Weight, looks or something else? I can tell you that after having a hard top now, I will never go back to soft again.

Boat looks beautiful!

I just like the easy maintenance of a soft top.

We now build a alternate 23 interior with dual livewells, casting platform, and dual fish boxes. Finished boat will debut at Miami Show.

Looks like a nice use of space Jeff. Are there any new leaning post options ? ie rear facing seat ?

Nice....what is the height and depth towards the transom of the platform/livewell?

Jeff, can you please explain the use of a $50 hatch being used as bilge access on a 125k 23?

We have a 23 2004 Albury and the plastic hatches used on the sides of the console and leaning post drive me nuts.

Rant over love the new wells great use of space!

It would be even more interesting to see some pics of the Albury family building a boat at the original site on Man-O-War Cay.
Are those headlights ?

Wow... love these threads. I'm always amazed at the time and craftsmanship that goes into building these boats. Great job guys!

I totally agree with this…is there an option for a different hatch?

Boat outfitters should be able to make a good hatch cover for that rear cheapo hatch. That cheapo will break due to it folding down making you have to lay on it or step on it to get your hands in there to change the pumps every couple years. Easy fix. Great looking boat. Like the new deck design.

Lot's of questions, time for answers:

1. Leaning post- We can install anything you like and there are many suppliers. We purchase our standard unit from Birdsall, the only unit we make is our livewell/leaning post.

2. The height of the livewell 17". Forward edge is 27" from transom, pictures attached.

3. Appreciate the constructive criticism regarding the hatch, I did not realize it was perceived so poorly. We do have a alternative hatch made for us by Teak Isle/Boat Outfitters, pictures attached. It is the same size, can have a clear or white Lexan door. Our cost difference is chump change (less than $100.00). I prefer the poly hatch because it is much stronger than you think, screws/pulls are hidden, it's no maintenance. The alternative hatch will get rust if the latch bleeds and the powder coated frame will not last forever. Your wish is our command !

4. Sailfish18- time to change out 12 year old plastic? Stop by with pictures and i'll try to help.

5. Picture of the boat building operation in Man O' War. My pictures of the brothers working are a bit dated. I'm sure someone else can post some.

Thanks for looking her over. Comments and constructive criticism are always appreciated and taken seriously. Jeff

Awesome thread! Kudos to jlichterman for a great write up and open mindedness to constructive criticism. With as much care taken to build these boats, I can only imagine that each one becomes your baby. It's a nice change to read a THT thread where the OP doesn't get his panties in a wad when another member offers a difference of opinion. I've always loved the lines of these boats!
