I't's a Marlin Tower and not that high and is cooler, quieter and not that much rougher up there unless it's real rough.

The visibility advantage of not having to look through glass is night and day.
Its Jarrett Bay Hull number 4, a 36' convertible. I don't know which owner pulled out the lower station, I think it would have been cool but prob had to do with adding space. The windows will eventually be removed and glassed in, less maint and less likely taking a wave through at Oregon Inlet.
