Console and "Bunny Pad" layout.

Tuuci Top bracket also doubles as a stripper pole.

Nice work, but it makes me want to cry seeing all that floor storage being covered up. Will it still be accessible?

This will be Awesome, Wait until you guys see the finish product. I had seen it several months ago as it was in its beginning stages. Incredible work done by Parker Yachts and its staff. I could not wait for it to come to the Hull Truth, but it was not my story to tell. Great JOB!!

All deck hatches were cut and drain tracks moved to facilitate the bunny pad, all under deck storage is still fully accessible.

Excellent. I'll sleep much better tonight knowing that there will be plenty of room to store food, beverages, and toys for the bunnies.
