you'll get many answers to this question and neither will be right are wrong, im in a big fountain and love the ride and performance that i get from it i can lope along at 2500rpm are run hard in nasty water, i do have a cabin all though i dont use it for much other than my stereo is down there and a occasional clothing change. i was in a 30ft amt this summer and we ran through some of the nasty water at loto at speeds well beyound my fountain and to be honest the damn thing had a remarkable smooth ride. alot smoother than my 42 fountain would have had, but then we spent alot af time in the air. i was impressed until we came back down to loping along speed then it slapped around and sprayed water and wasnt enjoyable. but at 65mph on it was a great ride. not much room and i dont like sitting all the time.
