Casting off the stern is tougher with the canvas up, but I can still fish 4 poles off the stern and two off the bow with no issues, and stay toasty warm inside the enclosure. Bought a buddy heater this year to put inside too. Really hoping to trade up to a hard top trophy or something like it soon. But hate to give up my Lund with the trolling motor for bass fishing. Ahhhhh I need like 4 boats to be happy. LOL Edit.. btw, the rear canvas comes off and its just three sided when im fishing. you already have the top, any canvas place ( I use Fitzners in Rotterdam) can custom build anything you like.
