    When they had that godawful "Rock the Boat" show on OLN about Ultra, it looked to me like they were slapped together out of plywood and drywall screws.
    dude--it was TV I know first hand there are no short comings in an Ultra boat when it comes to build quality... remember, its a west coast lake boat--it is every bit the equal to DCB, Eliminator, etc...not Skater, MTI, Nortech, Spectre...
    several of our havasu friends have Ultra cats...

Looking back on it - I believe him.

    28 Pantera
    28 Active Thunder (27ft something)

    I am told both handle true 4-6ft waves. My 24 python handled 2-3ft waves. Waves are measured differently in different areas. I measure from the hole to the crest.

    I guess different people have different ideas of what is considered comfortable as well. I could take a 17ft boston whaler in 4-6 footers and make it home safely, but i wouldn't be comfortable (at all). Its all relative, but most people don't want to be out cruising in a small boat in big seas for an extended period of time regardless of brand. (the two mentioned above are GREAT rough water boats...for their size)

    Thanks for calling back about the Chica Rica bathing suits. My wife likes several of the suits and we'll place an order later.

    In a box, s. side of chi town
    Whats that most inland lakes will only generate solid 4 footers at the most. Obviously they are not talking about the Great Lakes, You can ask anyone that was on the Chicago Poker Run last year will tell you they get NASTY. I think most of the pack was running in the 60mph range with a few over 90mph . There is a picture of Poker Face with the drives 3 foot out of the water.
    I quess thats what seperates the men from the boat owners.
