Playcraft is the company that pretty much made the term "performance pontoon" a reality, when they designed and pattened some fins that are welded the full length of the logs to provide lift, so it gets on top of the water. I don't have a new one with the twins, but my old '98 with a single 200 EFI runs 50 MPH GPS with two people in it. Now it won't handle the huge 6 footers but here at LOTO with lots of rought chop it does great. Once up and running the fins besides providing lift, also keep the boat smooth, but resisting movement up or down. Of course all the pontoon mfgrs. are now copying the design to compete. Actually one hellova ride.
