At 6'2" I pulled it out to gain a little headroom...

It's really not that wet of a boat, after I figured out the water "pumping" up the CB tube could be stopped and judicious use of the bilge pump it actually stays pretty dry in there

It's just that 2" bilge doesn't hold much before it sloshes up on the sole, so not too sure an exposed wood floor would be the best choice...
