    I happened to be up in Sturgeon Bay a couple weeks back and caught a few pics. Loos like a new 170.
    I had not seen anything posted yet, so here you go.

    I apologize for the poor picture quality, I only had a few seconds to get out of the car on the way to a client meeting

    I am expecting to get back up there in a week or two. I will make sure to allow time for some proper photos.

    I'm surprised to see two bow thruster tunnels on a 170'

    Good eye. Could it be redundancy? Given the lack of over-the-bow sight lines with recent PJ launches, twin thrusters could get a captain out of a world of hurt. In thrust we trust!

    I had not even noticed that. To echo Carl, Good eye Ken.

    Seeing forward from the 170 might be the only thing that can come close to seeing anything in the rear view mirror of most recent exotic cars. Had the opportunity to take a Murcielago for a drive up in Door County last year, and was afraid to back the thing up (however,going forward was probably the greatest excitement I have had in a very long time). The rear window is a joke.

    I am trying to get up there this week for more pics. Might not happen until next week though.
