Default 80's wave crushers

lets compare some of these boats

Chris Craft Stingers. 390X, 375, 415

Excalibur Hawk 40

Wellcraft Excalibur Eagle 42

Wellcraft Scarab 400

Wellcraft Scarab 38KV

Sonic 41

Fountain 12 Meter

Im gonna leave out Apache and Cigs just because they cost too much $$$. Rate them based on performance, rough water capabilty, amenities, quality, and looks

I actually have a 40ft Hawk, love the boat, but a little more headroom would be nice.

It's an all white 1984. Not fast but rides like a dream. 454/475hp but won't sware to it. Runs [email protected] rpms, tops out at @ 58mph with the 4 blades a little faster with the 3 blades on the top.

Is that GregP's old boat? If so, I looked and lusted after that tank for a long time, but just couldn't get the timing right....

Hawk 40
38KV
12M fountain

like that order... but not absolutely.
could change w/ a particular boat.
but all of these could be nice w/ 700-750hp and konrads.
