As for the T-top, it's a solid, well-built affair that's securely anchored to the deck. It features thoughtfully placed handholds and a rocket launcher along the aft edge. Just forward of the console is a 17-gallon aerated live well in the deck. A large, deep subdeck storage compartment is located forward of the live well. The bow features a lined anchor locker, plus a standard bowsprit with anchor roller. Other standard features include courtesy lights, a bilge pump, a 94-quart cooler seat with three-position backrest and storage below, and four flush-mount rod holders in the gunwales. Long, open compartments for holding loose gear run along both hullsides, although I would have liked to see these spaces outfitted with under-gunwale rod racks. Unless you order the T-top, rod storage is a bit of an issue on the 190, although some of Pandolfe's customers have solved the problem by mounting holders along the console sides. Rod holders could also be installed along the face of the console.
