    Thanks to all for help, hate to beat a dead horse, but can anyone tell me if the Tornado is closed or open bow on original, mine is closed and modified for a bass boat style pole seat in the middle and i don't think that is per original. Going for restoration here. Thanks

    I have a 79 Charger that is serving as my fishing boat right now. Great little runabout.
