    Default Tunnels

    TPR Stealth, GS Marine 19 Tunnel, cheyenne, etc... I always see these boats with no back seat... Is it not possible to fit one? As much as i love these boats, i need a back seat, even if it's not comfirtable....

    when i get home and post a pic, you can see the room you can have if you decide to go that route, anyone that owns a tunnel will get right behind me and say the same, "there is no other ride in that length of boat on the market!
    If they say other, they are either full of ***** have not driven a tunnel, i trully never thought i would say that about a boat!...and a 21' is even more comfy!...but still fun to drive!

    Assuming you're talking about 19' tunnels, it's not practical. You can put the front seats so that the driver and passenger's legs and feet are under the deck, move the engine back as far as it will go, and then have enough room for a back seat where children can sit. IMO

    plenty of room for 4 adults in a daytona
    this driver is 6'2" and that guy in the back is 6'1" and
    250 lbs.

    if needed he can pull the back seat, move the engine forward and change drivlines
    to the original setup for racing

    Hey Tonto I didn't write that it was impossible, LMRAO. I said the front seats have to be moved forward and the engine has to be moved back. Sorry, I don't know how to do multiple qoutes yet. Check out Outlaws post relating to "if needed he can pull...", or check out obierno's pic that he posted and tell me that's where that engine was originaly placed at, nah you didn't build those boats so you may not know the answer's I'm seeking from you. So just go check out your boat, how far is the engine from the transom? Why don't you post up that picture of your bitchin (bad assed!) ride that shows how close your back seat is to your front seats? I dug your boat so much I'm pretty sure I saved that picture so if you don't know where it is I'll check back later and post it up for you. C'mon Todd, don't attack me unless you want to show/tell the whole story.

    (Edit: Damn I need to stay out of political and religous topics, they get me way too worked up!)

    My shadow had a back seat. It was comfortable for my ice chest, but not for people (no leg room). The boat rides like crap with the extra weight so I took them out. And went to fiberglass buckets.

    "Kuimosabe"!...What the hell are you talking about?...Tonto? LMFAO you are too much to figure out right now, are you referring to me or someone else?
    P.S. learn how to quote, because this would not be so confusing otherwise.

    This pic showed here was taken when i had the injection unit in the boat, when i was able to remove the cam driven fuel pump, it free'd up about 5 or so inches to move the back seat back, that is where i was able to fig larger human beings, like Big Jim Dodd.
    Is this the pic Rod was referring to?
