We own a Chaparral Sunesta 233.
It's been a unbelievably trouble free boat.

Has anyone listened to the speaker quality of the Rockford Fosgate tower speaker option?
Thanks.

My question also is a 6.5 soaker good enough on a tower. My wife hates loud music so it's never that loud on the boat. Just wondering can you hear it good enough while swimming. I saw some Roswell and JL 6.5 that are priced good.
I have not personally listened to Rockford but I had there amp.It was ok I had kicker speakers and a bit too much low end for me. I'm a crisp clean treble guy.

Here is the SS/White non-folding arch on our R7. We have not had any viewing issues with the wide base at all. Never even gave it a thought really until I read your post.

People come up with some unique color combinations. I like he pale yellow on top more than I thought I might.

That is a sharp boat. The blue boot stripe and the blue bimini work well together.

Old boat sold, and ironically I won't be ordering the arch on my new Cobalt. I love the look, but I came to terms that I need it to fold over style. So, ez fold Bimini it is. The folding aluminum arch looks like crap IMO, and doesn't do the boat justice.

I have a lot of time before my order slot can be altered, and it's costing me a lot of money.

I've moved from an R5 to an R7. Loaded up pretty good. Still considering electric toilet over portipotty, and maybe a cockpit sink.
I started at 130k, and now up to 152k. Someone stop me.
