The way the price has been dropping it looks like somebody is going to get a deal. Very interesting finish on the interior.

I would need to rip it all apart and turn it into a simple fishing machine with more space.....but hows the power? What was he asking of the summer for it?

That thing must rock and roll....and not in a good way...Like Tunaorlater said...it doesn't pay to rip all that stuff out and do all that work....your better off buying a new hull and top

I know my current nb with the bridge rolls no more then my last without one. Guess it all depends on how heavy the bridge is. Mine is very light, less then if 2 guys were sitting on the roof. Plus I have no top witch would most likely add to the roll.

The flying bridge is more weight aloft which will slow the roll (increase the period), not make it "snap roll".

Even when that momentum from the weight catches the next wave? Your theory sounds good but in reality taking weight off the center of gravity always helps.

i pulled the bridge off my 28 harris due to the fact that it rolled like a son of a bitch even on calm days. once that round bilge starts going there is nothing to stop it. before and after

Nice look w/out the bridge.
So, did removing the bridge stop the rolling? I have been considering the same thing and am wondering if it would be worth the time. It is nice to run with the wind in my face on nice days

all boats are different but it made a tremendous difference on that boat. that bridge and all the superstructure was alot of weight up there on a releatively narrow beam. i love the bridge but that boat couldn t have it. my 30 chris craft with a bridge and an enclosed wheelhouse is quite tall but rolls less and more comfortably than the harris. what rig do you have?
