Salt water in the crotch might not be so bad on a hot day matter of fact it probably feels better than a bucket of ice water!!
A good friend of mine bought a new 38 top gun a few months ago and I have been going out with him . We took the boat to Key West last month. When you get back down I'll get you a ride on it so you can have a" reality check". When its ****ty in the ocean its ****ty for both V's and the cat. Been there enough times over the last few months in both boats and neither one is much fun in 4-5's. The cig. was drier going through the cut but the cat is smoother once your past it, but neither one was fun after 20-30 minutes. It was much better heading back in and not having to play the throttles especially for the people in the back seat. Come out for a ride and see for yourself.
