He did not state 'underway' but your right, I assumed he meant on plane.

90% of the time we cruise at 7 to 8 mph. When you are land locked there is no need to get in a hurry.

I guess it depends on what you are doing. Long trip or short trip? What kind of weather? What kind of passengers? How much load are you carrying? Day or night, etc. In my personal case, my boat has full glass enclosure and a camper back. I only drive during the day and the glass is in place with only my side rolled up. The bimini is in place but the camper sides and back are rolled up for visibility. I have 3 small children (10, 8, 6) and they sit outside with me, either next to me on the helm, or with my wife on the port or starboard seating sides (have the 95 3200 scr), never in the rear facing seat. My issue with passengers in the cabin is simply this, in a worse case scenario such as the boat listing or capsizing, the cabin is the last place you want to be. So, we sit outside, kids with life jackets on.

All I can say is in the cabin is better than out on the front deck. I can't tell you the number of times I've seen an express cruiser up on plane with people sitting out front. The handrails are not there because that is an area to sit in when underway.

Shhhhhh!!! Please lower your voice, the boat is sleeping.
