    I checked out a new ATX in the showroom (not sure the model but they have a profile now like a nautique paragon) but they have rear flip up seats that flip ‘both’ ways, like front and rear…. I like nothing else about that boat but I love that design of those rear seats….
    Ok, have to refine my post….

    It was not a new ATX in the showroom (shows how much I was paying attention) it was one of the new Tige Ulta ZX’s…..

    Bmac, I will say that surprises me they come that close to the stock bags, as they seemed to ‘barely’ protrude into the spot where the bins are…. All that being said, I know I am not interested in them…..

    I just realized that I have 200lbs of lead under each bag in the rear compartments. That is why I don’t have a lot of space from my seat mechanisms to the top of the bags.

    Got into a discussion at the boat show with the TWRA (TN water cops) about what is legal when sitting in the rear facing seats. It started when we noticed a pontoon manufacturer that had a model with a 1/2 fiberglass and 1/2 metal railing around the outside of the swim platform.

    Utah has made it legal to sit in the rear facing seats when the boat is equipped with a surf pipe and the boat is going no faster than 12 mph.

    They sounded confused at first. Gave me answers in a few directions, so I press them more.

    But it came down to there had to be a continuous part of the boat, like a transom or rail in front of any rear facing seat. Thus, the pontoon sounded fine b/c it had a small railing on each side of the outboard motor.

    That is how Heyday is for their rear facing seats on the H series boats. There is a metal rail that is on the transom to make riding in the legal as it is considered being in the boat. If you look at photos of an H22, you will see it.

    Yep, the toon had the outboard in the middle.

    Speaking of Heyday, I do not recall them at the boat show. It’s interesting how they up their game little by little each year - H22 looks to be their best setup.

    We were walking out of the boat show at closing and saw the Heydays and didn't get to look at them closely. They are definitely improving.
