In total aggreement with Cattitude
it is all in what YOU do on the majority of runs
Hell even my cat is to small for loto on a busy weekend.
But I bet it will run like hell during the week. I know it ran great in hte early am that I let Waterfoul drive.

32Fever,
I too have the same dilemma, I have a 26' Boat with 2' of swim platform, and I want to move up to something as fast or faster, 2x ?? power, that has a full enclosed head and all the amenities to keep the boss happy, and that is roughly in the 35'+ range, but the $$ are almost 2-3 times what I paid for my present boat!? I guess I just keep looking, and buying lotto tickets!

I went from a 28 Eliminator Eagle to a 30 Eagle. There was a huge difference in the boats. The 30 has so much more freeboard and the difference in the ride is amazing. Not knocking the 28, the 30 is just a big step up, even though it was only 2 feet(a little contradicting???). I am sure that each manufacturer is different and a person would have to really do some comparative testing to evaluate whether or not the step up is worth it. BTW, my boating is done at Lake Powell so big water opinions would have to come from the other members who "live " in the big stuff!!!
