The 22 ZX was a good boat, I had a Supercharged 454/510 hp. The hull can take a beating and did not ride like a 22. I ran in Poker runs with some of the big boys. The step hull is not as bad as some make them out to be. I learned how to handle the boat the right way. When you trim only trim 1/4 way on the drive at all times, DO NOT TUCK THE DRIVE IN when making a turn this will cause the boat to stuff! You don't have to over trim the boat either. Other then that she is a real good boat , There is not to many boats in that size that can keep up with a 22ZX in rough water. I hope this some what of a help. Any other Questions don't hesitate and E-Mail me. If your interested in a new one let me know I will see what I can do for a price on a 2003.
