    It’s been great. Perfect solo mission boat.

    Curious, does it ever get awkward or uncomfortable standing up for long times in that boat? It seems like it could be somewhat difficult to get your footing or body position exactly where you want it to be with these recessed spaces?

    I had smaller versions of this boat and yes it was awkward/uncomfortable with that tunnel in the middle. The larger 14’, not so much. I built the decks to fish from and they are about as perfect as I had imagined them to be. When it’s rough I’ll stand at the helm and fish, which is why I went with a short console. In the stern you can stand on the tunnel and on the back floatation bench/seat.

    Do you have to be pretty selective when you go out based on weather? I guess it would depend more on the ability of the boater than the boat.

    I’m always weather/conditions dependent, no matter what. The only real limit in the Livingston is how much of an *** kicking do I want on the way home. Risk vs Reward
