At 6'5" you will rarely find a boat you CAN stand up in. I'm only 6' and headroom is a regular problem for me, especially in boats under 40' or so.

P.S. Great choice of boat.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
