Default Can the 22-25' Eliminator Daytonas Handle the Ocean

Right or wrong, when I think of Eliminator, I think of a fast lake boat. I was wondering if the lake boat perception is really accurate. Can the 22 and 25 foot Daytonas handle the Pacific ocean on calmer days without pounding the occupants or the hull into submission (or stress cracks)?

Not sure about the ocean but Lake Erie will take the fun out of boating real quick in a 25 Daytona. Swells are too far apart to stay on top.

I'm there every weekend in the summer. That shoreline is hard to miss.

its not that there that far apart on erie...they are actually pretty close. Its the fact that on anygiven day your hitting two 3' waves followed by one 5' wave followed by a 1 foot wave followed by two 3' waves and repeat..but they are all close and steep.

I've heard the Great Lakes have a washing machine effect.

What happens when you hit a 5 foot wave in a Daytona 25? Is that going to stuff it?

Simple...Im guessing its a sit down boat.
You drill a hole in the middle of the seat, then use that hole to mount a 2" hitch ball. Now when you hit that 5' wave, shear pucker power will keep you firmly attached to the restraint system and in the boat. you may get a little wet, you may walk like Jessica Simpson after taking the entire dallas offensive line at once, but you should stay in the boat and survive.
