    Did Bayliss put that pic up on his website??? :eek:

    I'm in shock and sure the owners will want that picture taken down immediately. Hidden gun lockers have been de-rigueur for a long time in the custom world and their locations have always been a closely guarded secret for many very good reasons.

    I am subscribed to their youtube channel and they have another video of hull 14 called "shark byte" , but also with guns in it shown covered behind a painting in the master bedroom.
    At 1.50seconds you see the guns.

    +1 on that... for a builder to publicize this is just plain idiotic.

    I would be pissed off also if my hidden gun storage vault was advertised so the entire world knows where it's located.

    it seams to me they went out of their way to show off the guns, it is featured in the above video link at the 2:00 mark and in image 7 on the manufactures web gallery of interior photos.

    I guess 9 on 10 of these Pieces of Art have weapons and safeties hidden behind berths' headboards in the Master Stateroom and assuming they are thought for Owners protection/security, I wonder where else they would have to be hidden.

    On Bayliss website there are at least 4 or 5 coverages of these items on different vessels and I'm almost sure I remember one photo where both John Bayliss and the Owner are pictured together in front of the opened storage; may be this means Owners are not that disturbed about this.

    Nevertheless I agree somebody could dislike these things are so broadly shown on Internet, also considering what's going on in these days all around weapons.

    That said, these are in my opinion the most beautiful floating objects in the Sportfish world and it is not by accident that in less than a decade they became a benchmark.

    This is the humble opinion of a poor Italian guy for whom these Boats are like a Stradivari for a violinist.

    As I use to say to some of my friends here, if I born again I want to work for Bayliss.:)
