Yes to the Sonic question, I have riden in one off Miami and it is a nice, well built boat. My question is is hull design everything or does weight have something to do with with ride quality too? I know weight does nothing but bring down top speed but I have always firmly believed offshore powerboats were designed to go fast in rough water in a straight line and not turn like a Porsche. In other words would a 38' 24deg. 7000 lb. boat have the same ride as the same 9000 lb. boat.....in 4 to 6 footers?
