We all have gone out in the Atlantic, right off Pompano beach, thats where Thunder does its test rides. My ride was in 4-6 footers, Dans was in 6-8 footers. Skypirate, I cant say, but he can, go to the Thunder web site check out Todd Kjell website, that will give you an idea what coming off of a 8 plus wave in a 32 will do. It rides like nothing else, and you are start seeing the believers that are coming over from some of the big name boat co, like I said go for a ride, check the quality out, then make your desicion.
As to speed, Im satisfied with 105, A.T thinks closer to 108-110, but Im loaded out with a/c, generator, tv, dvd, pump out, playpen dual bed, L shaped rear seating, the list goes on, so Im going to be a few hundred pounds heavier than 8400 pounds dry, I'll post some numbers when I pick it up, or wait till the POWERBOAT add comes out.
