"you're the one that doesn't like rough water"

You got that right. Frankly, I have had enough storms at sea in an open boat. A 60 foot hatteras looks really good to me, just can't afford one right now. <gg>

With more time on the water, and lots of dollars spent for wave bashed and busted boat parts, I think eventually you will think the same: boating is best in nice weather conditions. Big waves means big scares and busted boat parts. I don't like either one.

Pic of the new Sunseeker ? above means, after a few miles of that, a broken microwave, busted stereo amps, seat components that are bent or broken etc. etc. maybe a broken nose and bruised thighs.

Talk to anyone who has battled 50 miles of big waves and my guess is they prefer boating in nice weather. I have yet to meet any experienced boater who has not been taught a painful lesson or two by King Neptune.

Oh yeah, you complained Sonics are heavy. Yep, that is why they are good sea boats, just like your old cig. A light boat, no matter what is it made of, will beat the H*&^ll out of you in big waves. You want max weight for a better ride.

Phil of Lipship......your boat is not an avil, don't beat on it!

[in them sometimes), I'd advise you to purchase an enclosed bridge, 60 foot Hatteras.[/QUOTE]

i would still go for the Azimut or sunseeker
has to be min of 80 ft thought,,
maybe next yr

IF YOU WANT TO RUN IN 6 -8 ++ FT CHIT THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED

by the way those are prob 3 - 4 max. those boats are almost 14 ft long.

Ooo, you bad! I'd say that is easier to park than a dually, and likely gets better mileage too! You are having loads of fun and that is what counts.

At least it's FRESH water.

One less problem to deal with, too true. Another is no sharks when you get thrown out for a swim, unless you are in a Donzi, of course. NK
