Appreciate it!
The opening is 20” x 6 1/4” for the large t-top (canvas).

If you’re referring to the large hardtop, it may be different.

That is awesome - great concept. Surprised that isn't super popular right now

I like it, but would anyone be wary of the wire connections to those switches/breakers being jostled every time the door is opened and closed?

I guess it's great to keep the switches out of the elements, but I like have access to them without have to open anything up.

Well I am on the board with the new build, a 24 Deep Vee with forward seating for the sun goddess, and as you can imagine I am very excited. Thanks Keith for your input! Going with a Mercury 300 V-8 single.

Default Production delays

Anyone expecting a boat soon? I was hoping to get my 21 MV last week which was the original estimation of completion date. Unfortunately, delays have pushed back delivery. Hopefully it will be ready in the next few weeks. I understand all boat manufacturers are having similar issues with production. Wish I wouldn’t have sold my other boat so soon!!

I wouldn’t do that. With a boat that small and a bracket every bit of weight matters hanging off the back.

Bryan told me that the first 21DV was going to get a 250 or 300 - can't recall exactly which one

I’ve seen one online with a 250 , i heard of one guy saying he has one on order with a 300 , and another swapped a 200 zuke for a 225 merc and said it was a big difference

We have a 21 MV. I asked Bryan about a 250hp and he advised against it. He said the 200 gives better balance and runs smoother. We have the 200 with digital controls, and it's nice, but I do wish my rig was a little faster...it goes over 40 and well under 45mph.

you’re talking 475lbs in the DF175 to 600lbs on the 300 Vrod. When you have a bracketed boat that is only 21ft every pound makes a difference. You’re moving the fulcrum point further back with every pound.

I totally agree with what u saying but according to the website zuke 175 is 511, merc 4.6 300 520, merc 225 is the lighter one

appears to be some very conflicting information on the zuke weights. Suzuki DF175 Weight?

Don’t know why the suddenly jacked the weights up. They’ll lose a lot of sales over that. Especially when you compare to the Merc 200 with the Vrod mid which IMO is the nest 200 out there. Again I would be trying to shorten the setback and limit weight. Not increase setback and weight. The latter will cause lots of quirks in the performance

i couldn’t imagine there being much performance difference between suzuki 200 vs merc 225

I’m hoping to go in the mold in the next few weeks. My original ECD was around the 15th of July so it’s looking like I will be a a few weeks beyond that, which I am ok with. These delays are hitting everywhere right now, including my business with getting parts. It seems like everything is on back order.

yeah it’s pretty bad right now. Even if builders are OK on resin it’s the outboard availability right now. Went to order my pro deal Mercury 200 Vrod for my Layton a few weeks back and was told 54 weeks. Yamaha has nothing, zuke was minimum 150 days (up from 100) ... even if you’re boat goes in the mold soon it’s pretty likely that you won’t have an engine. We just had to tell some of our Onslow customers that because of engine shortage they likely won’t get their boat until nov/December. Nothing the builders can do about this unfortunately. This will improve and hopefully get back on schedule over the coming winter. It’s the next few guys going in the mold that will likely have big delays. Trailers are also delayed big time and the cost has gone up 18%.. aluminum is up 65% right now.

What power are you going with? When was the engine ordered?
