Patrick, I built a fly fishing platform across the whole bow of the boat that is a great place to scout and cast from for sure. It also allows for a bunch of semi-dry storage beneath that platform. It is old, the motor is from 86 so it is much "newer" HA. It is loud. My wife hates it and wants me to sell it and get it out of the driveway. The girls love it. We just don't use it nearly enough. If it had some enclosed space besides just the bimini top it would be better on cooler spray or rain filled days. It is all I've got, so I'm happy to have it for now.
