The bilge is exposed fiberglass, painted black, rather than smooth gelcoat. Ditto the ski locker. Where it truly counts, however, the 214 gets it right. Step into the port console head compartment and you’ll appreciate the hinged half-moon that raises to increase clearance. Under the helm you’ll see wiring run within heavy-duty conduit. Feel around behind the through-bolted cleats and you’ll find beefy aluminum backing plates, a superior mount.
