I had it on my G23 and would fold it towards the front of the boat when putting the cover on, no problems. I forgot to fold it one time & the guys putting up the boat at the marina folded it back towards the vibration moving the boat scratched the mirror but not bad
Another thing to consider is how Bennington's hold their value, I sold my G23 with a Yamaha 200hp in July and I was surprised at how little it depreciated. It also helped that my dealer was low on 2018's at the time.
I took the Q out for a spin Saturday, it was cold but well worth it. Top speed right now is 46mph, Dealer is going to try another prop to see if we can get a couple more. Love the way the power steering makes the boat turn
I sold my 2014 G23 yesterday so I will be upgrading to the 2019 Q25 swingback, for those living in the southern states do the dark seat accents get hot on those 90 degree days in the sun? I have always had white or light colored seats for that reason
