    Nice pictures... but there is no way I would allow anyone, especially kids, to ride on the bow while on plane.

    Here is a drone selfy. ha They are good tools for some great boating pics. I have had a few, for a few years now, before the craze started. They are super neat and handy for boat pics.

    and as far as riding on the bow on plane, everyone has their own set of rules. Its legal in my state, and the kids are not new to boating or water. Where sitting down the whole ride with their dad holding them with life jackets on. If this was in some big water, or something it would be a different story, but on the TN river on water sking smooth water with there dad holding them. I can think of 20 more dangerous things those kids did all day, then ride back to the marina with there dad watching the sunset on the bow.

    Agreed. That's a sure way to draw blue lights from our on water LEOs (state, county or coasties) where we boat. For good reason, I might add.

    I really like the look of that 260! Sits up high and proud. The profile is very masculine(for lack of a better word). Really nice boat. JC

    No one rides on the bow of my boat unless we are at idle.

    Take a look at this moron a couple of summers ago. The people on the bow were teenagers and under.

    Personally I'm not a big fan of all the policing people do on this site. I light candles on my boat (at least my wife does) and maybe a couple other things people might object to. But dude, you can't be running a boat with kids on the bow. That's completely insane. Every life on your boat is in your hands. People are on there having the time of their lives not a care in the world while your driving looking for the next buoy so you don't run aground, watching engine temps watching oil pressure, watching for every other moron out there doing stupid stuff. The point is your passengers don't have the instincts firing about the inherent dangers they are in. Besides if anything happens how do u live with that decision?

    Bow riding is bad. Swimplatform riding is much better. Closer to the water means less splash when someone falls in. And, no one on the boat gets wet!

    And when they pass out from carbon monoxide poisoning and slip into the water and drown, you won't even see or hear it.
