Sounds like we should have drove the 41. A freind of mine and I drove to LCM for him to buy a 42, the deal went south. He looked hard at the 41, I just had no real info on it. LCM said it drove like a much bigger boat and was great in rough water. Thanks for the info. It seemed the 42 had a little more room in the cockpit. I could stretch my legs out in the rear bench and could barely touch the bolsters. The 41 I could touch, but there is ample room. The bussle on the back is very sleek and the sun pad is big enough to enjoy.
