One word describes how we felt about having the 3060 Window Express as our dive boat: Phew! There's simply no way that four children, 5 years old and younger, would have lasted through our outing without a cabin. At times we had three adults and three kids hanging out in the air-conditioned salon and adjoining forward stateroom. An infant slept in the mid-berth, with the help of the hull's gentle motion. Full windows made the boat feel more open, and they also gave the kids a mesmerizing water-level view of the marine world. The galley swallowed up a load of food and drinks, and the faux-wood floors came in handy whenever a juice box or bag of Cheetos hit the deck. Up top we congregated in the shade in the circular cockpit seating arrangement. The stern seat was flipped down to create space for the giant cooler on board. We needed every bit of it, too, because by day's end it was packed with fresh seafood.
