Default Looking at a 30 ft. Spectre w/300's

Have some concerns about how it will ride in the LOTO soup.
will i get beat to death? Can the boat handle the wave abuse? anything i should be aware of with this setup?

Thanks

it will be a little flighty on the rough days, but the rest of the time it will be a blast....

3 feet and under and it will ride like a Cadillac. Over that and your passengers better hold on.

Mine is for sale with big blocks in the Classifieds. It might be worth considering in the rough water? The extra weight helps keep it down and its 15mph faster than the outboards.

i have a 98 30' with 300x's. its used primarily in the barnegat bay. 100 gals of fuel, 2 3 or 4 people, 15x32 3 blades, 62-6300 rpms, usually 1-2 ft washing machine water its a consistent 100mph boat with a best of 106 and a very conservative set-up. they love chop and dont like swells. i totally agree with what speed2lead said...100%. going to tinker over the winter. its my understanding that by adding a little weight to the nose on the outboard boats it'll run better and faster. boat has perfect manners, has never left me feeling like i'm on the edge of outta control. its my first cat and will NOT be my last. good luck in your purchase. in my opinion its the best outboard cat on the market (pleasure wise) but then again i'm partial
