    I have a back seat in my Daytona. There is little to no room back there though:

    Backseat

    We got the backseat in with a Jet a way and a blower drive, but it's not
    what I would call comfortable. Works for short trips or short people.

    What i was thinking! Todd sorry i asked if it had reverse, ment to ask if it had a neuteral position other than holding your foot in place. How does it work, does it work like a clutch being that you cant lock it into reverse. I assume you put your foot down and it goes into reverse and when you let off the bucket opens?

    Thinking about it now, designing one that worked like a clutch wouldnt be all that hard, hardware wouldnt be cheap. Got any close up pics?

    One trip out and i will not install another hand lever if i can ever help it, its like second nature!
    ...as for any race advantages?..."Im sure it would help out in a race scenerio, it frees up a hand!" but i would'nt know, have not been able to get off my beach cruiser! lol

    Forward and Reverse huh, never seen that before. Do you have reverse with that setup? Why did you go that route, any advantages from a race stand point, maybe a quick release that forces the bucket up?

    That's a great analogy, sitting "on" the tunnel hull it's more like sitting on a skateboard going down a hill (wondering when you're going to eat sh!t with a smile on your face).

    i had a back seat for my daytona, a normal adult could sit behind the pass. but there was only about 4-6" between drivers seat and back seat, i am 6'6" and 265lbs, i needed to move the sear back, and could have gone the rest of the way back to actually be very comfortable, pics don't really show how tight it is.

    More times than not I wish my 21 Daytona was a 22 or even better a 25 footer. One thing I don't care for with my 21 is the freeboard or lack there of...bad enough I feel like I'm sitting on the boat vs in it...I rode in a 19 Daytona once >quick little boat but I felt like I was sitting on top of the deck.

    forward/reverse pedal
    The pic was taken this last spring at a show out at the high octane performance expo in @ California raceway in Fontana, with Concept marine, the helmet i had and figured i would just paint it to match the boat, wanted to try the boat out sooner or later, dont know when, as its not a priority of mine, i would much rather watch everyone else, less stressful environment on the back of a beach cruiser IMO!
    Good luck and have fun/be safe at NJBA in 09' Shawn!
