Had a 30' V, just bought a 36' Spectre Poker Run Edition. It has been the best purchase I have ever made in regards to boats. The wife is much happier due to the nice ride, plus no wind tangling up the hair with the canopies. We had the boat out in the pacific on sunday, 2' wind chop and 3-4 foot swell. The boat rode like it was on rails, unbelivable. No bouncing up and down, and side to side. Just a smooth solid ride. I was a tried and true V bottom guy, got a ride over memorial day weekend in a friends skater at alittle over 130, then bought the spectre. We will never own another V again unless it is a large ocean crusing yacht. Gotta Get A Kitty, Just look out for the insurance!!!!!!!
