... actually, looking closer at the v17 price list on the MOANE site, it looks like the pulpit and lifelines were options... also offered winches, which it looks like kole's boat has
well, i've stripped mine of all hardware, and i'm thinking i'm leaving the pulpit and the lifelines off. the life lines are just trip hazards, and the sidedecks seem more usable w/o them...
and as for the pulpit, well, mac definitely botched the fabrication and/or install on mine- you might be able to see in one of the pics just how far inboard the aft starboard deck attachment is compared to the one to port... the thing's totally cockeyed (!) added character i guess... anyway, i like the clean low pro look of joe's... kind of southern california style... as of now, one deformed pulpit and original set of lifelines are for sale.
