For instance, foam lining the hull sides created a solid feel and a quiet landing that I appreciated when I got rambunctious and decided to jump some wakes. The Bimini top is extra wide, extending out past the inner gunwales —it’s extra long too — providing superb protection from the sun. I counted four coolers aboard our test boat, so consider the “libation quotient” met. The fact that hatches aboard the 2460 DC FC feature gasketed lids and deep draining gutters assures us that gear stowed within will stay dry. The enclosed head proved easy to access, even for this 6-foot-tall boat tester. Interestingly, the head opens on the bow lounge, not the cockpit, as is more typical. Especially in these times of questionable fuel quality, I appreciated that a screw-down “soft patch” allows access to the gas tank, though I would have liked to see this caulked in place instead of just fastened with screws.
