|Does anybody have pictures of that malibu that was on here a while ago with a bimini that kinda looked like a igloo with snaps connecting to the windshield. Kinda hard to describe it basically had a clear part that connected to the windshield in between the bimini that sealed of the cabin from all air and made itlook indoor?|
|Here are some from a Supra I saw a while ago. |
|wow,that is a function over form kinda thing its ugly but with a heater you could use your boat at any temp as long as the the lake is not frozen. how do you grab the dock? does the window on the side have a zipper? |

|the one on the bu looks way way better|
|i am pretty sure i would go insane in that, let alone i bet it takes some getting used to when in tow|
|The one on that Malibu is legit. I like that alot. That would make the winter much nicer.|
|Where do you go to buy those things? Do you have to get them custom made?|
|Travis, you live in FL. Put on a sweatshirt when it gets cold. |
|is the back all open? |
I'm sure it is custom but any good marine canvas shop can do it.
|Tim, in these parts one never rides in the boat without a sweatshirt |
|Where can I get one of those|
|I had mine custom made.|
|I wasn't really saying for me. But, you can bet I get the heater and heated seats in my boat. It gets cold here. Today was only 79!|
|o man 79 it was 35 here|
|Wow... if you can't hack the cold, don't buy a boat.|
|MasterCraft has an option called Eisenglass that is very simular to the Malibu pictured above. |
I think they should call it a "Yankee Top" myself.
|That boat is from Gonnasons in Kent, Wa. isn't it?|
|Eisenglass is just the name for the clear plastic. |
Same stuff as is found on the fish boats.
My son played hockey on the lake today so the enclosed top wouldn't help today unless you ice fish.
|I like the Bu one. It looks like you could still use it at 30 mph.|
|Yeah that is Gonnasons.|
|This was came with mine when i bought it used... works like a charm on cold mornings... zip the windows right off and then just the bimini is on... pretty cool "extra" when i bought it. |
|I hope nobody farts......|
|what about exhaust fumes? the station wagon affect?|
|Wow! Those guys did what we have always joked about. That IS legit. I might actually rid more in the winter if we had one of those.|
|Brandon that was the most random, funniest thing I've heard for a long time on this forum. Thanks for the laugh...|
|I'm one of the owners of the black and red malibu. |
Here are some more pics of the boat: http://www.area69.com/pictures/main.php/f/vlx
We got a heated seat and a 3 outlet heater, so its really nice and warm in there.
|Here is another picture |
|that is awesome! So it still stays fairly warm in there even with the open back?|
|Yeah! Its super nice in there. |
|I've seen that Supra going down the freeway a couple of times. I've always wanted to get a closer look at it. Up hear in Seattle, that thing would be a godsend for winter riding, no matter how ugly.|
|OK Viktor.... the million dollar question. How much?|
|The one on the Malibu is pretty awesome,I like it alot!!!|
|Is that a Jetta wagon pulling the VLX? What's the towing capacity on that thing? Must be the diesel model .|
|how much, nothing but cry sacks here in the island(whidbey).|
|Anyone have any pics of Mastercraft's version and/or know what the option costs? There's a small picture of the eisenglass option in the '07 catalog but its not a very good one.|
|HOW MUCH? WHERE DO YOU GET ONE?|
|That thing is badass. It would be nice for Florida in the rainy season!|
Looks more like a Passat now that I think about it.
|sorry for being off topic, but kenny that is an awesome profile picture.|
|Thank you Brett..|
|Its custom made by a shop that makes boatcovers and sprayhoods. At todays exchangerate it was about $1440(USD) or €1000 (10 000 Swedish kronor) |
Yeah its my Passat. Its a 1.8 liter Fwd. :-)
It was heavy, but quite ok. We pulled it a really short distance and just stopped to filler her up.
|oh another thing. Its foldable and fits in the storage under the seats on the portside.|
|Here are some pictures of boats that be based our design on. |
And here are the design drafts we gave to the guy that made the thing.
|Im posting everything I have since people are curious about it. |
|Thanks Viktor, I was curious about the folds. |
You did a good job thinking it through.
