Are the other boats just more efficient hull designs?? What makes the PQ top out there when the other boats don't? I assume that a faster over all boat has a faster cruising speed too??
If im wrong please correct me, I want something sleek and nasty on the water but efficient at cruising too! Of coarse with the cabin space too.
I know im needy!
single engines burn alot less fuel, chck fuel capacity too, if it only hold 50 gallons, then you know it won't burn too much
Single engine would be cool for the fuel factor but since I am looking in the 30s now or even upper 20s. Most boats are twins that I find. The singles I find don't seem to be too fast (adds say 55 on gps and such).
Can you send the pm again? I was trying to make more room in pm box and deleted that one on accident. Being a newbie I only have space for 10 pms. Send and received. That sucks.
How often do you boat inland vs erie? Gonna be tough to find a boat that will do well inland plus handle Erie on the rough days. If you only boat Erie when its fairly nice plus a bunch of inland boating my 25' Powerplay would be a great choice. Done great on Lake St. Clair for me thus far.
On rough days you will want a 28+ for sure. Bit large for most inland lakes tho I would imagine.
Boat is fairly local here in Detroit.

More on lake Erie than inland. Only inland on vacation or when we go "camping". However I wont go out in psyco rough days unless I get caught off gaurd.
This is for Lake Erie, also watch the sky, and if you go out in 2 footers, don't expect 6s anytime soon, if you go out in 4's well then it doesn't take long to get 6's
I always watch the NOAA site. Way better then any POS weather/news channel!! I know lake Erie pretty well so what I mean by off guard is more... going to sandusky for weekend and having a storm build in canada and come crap all over me and having to deal with that. Gotta go home at some point. Can't stay forever lol.
Lol right, I know some people that went to Canada and it was calm, came back the next day in 7 footers
If you plan to go that far though you need to be at a length of 30+....or else your getting to dangerous territory.... 12 foot waves occur every now and then
