Now if I was to boat regularly at Have-a-brew, I'd be looking at a 32 Sunsation Mid-cabin with 496 Mag HO's. Black motors with warranties, an honest 70 mph or so, lots of room for friends and space to stretch out if you're beached or rafting.

The Dominator SS is a mesh of the Innovator hull and Dominator deck/cockpit.

Here we go again...comparing two boats..

In 2001/2002, I ran my Sunsation in SoCal (Newport) with a lot of the best drivers, driving a lot of the best boats out here in So Cal. No doubt. With my Sunsation rocket ( 2x500's, dry cmi's), I would'nt be the only one to say that the Dominator held up when the going got rough out there. We definitly kept up when it was go fast time. The boat by itself has natural ability.

In fact, if we had a good line, with a decent mid-RPM range... We'd definitly get a quick fast head start before the big boys with the outrageous power, blowers & 6's could catch us to pounce.. They never really did leave us in the spay too much on those days. When it did get really rough & ugly though; everyone comes in... It's just no fun.

So. 80/20 mix on Havasu/Pacific:
** No matter what the size.Their 32" Products definetly take the cake....Ya just can't beat the construction, set up, speed and working with Mitcher T with of course west coast support of The Factory ....The Factory guy's, from the top down are ready to take a call to help no matter what the situation...

Dont take it from me....Ask around.

Weren't you BANNED ????

I thought it was now Chief ??? Anyway,, for ocean running I would go A.T./Chief

The 28 A.T. was first on my list last year, but their price wasn't.. I found them to be a bit pricey for a 28 not to mention Pat told me it would take a year to build..

Blane,

Going bigger already??

The 32 Sunsation is a really nice boat, but it's not much bigger than what you have now. I haven't seen the 33 AT, but if it's based on the 37 I'm guessing it's a pretty good sized boat.

That is what I am thinking, just not sure it will fit in my garage in Havasu. Maybe a swing-away tongue get's me there ?
