Default Eliminator 25 Daytona-help With Ride.

Looking for some input into the ride qualities into oncoming 3 to 4 foot waves/swells spaced 12 foot apart.I'm looking to purchase and these are the conditions always encountered.What speed would be comfortable.Would it be a wet ride.Would you get much air/hard landings???Desperately need some advise before i purchase.

Dude, Wrong boat for those kinda conditions. Im assuming this is a cat? NOWAY...............You'll be sorry you did. 30 ft min, deep V for that and your still going to take a beating. Your speed is going to depend on your skill level. Either way your gonna launch and things are gonna break.

I agree, wrong boat for that water. You could probably go a little smaller than 30ft though but not much. My 28 Cigarette would eat that water for breakfast. A 24 Pantera would be a "fun" ride through it. I've gone 70+ in good 4 to 5 footers off Miami in a 24 (with Joe Nunez driving) Are the swells really 12 FEET apart or 12 seconds apart?

Unhappy Re: Eliminator 25 Daytona-help With Ride.

Yes they are 12 foot apart.So a 25 Daytona is only a lake or river boat even taking it easy.Anybody out there had one in the bumps?What can they take?
