I Just Sold My 38zx Donzi But It Was One Of The Best Rought Riding Boats I Have Ever Experienced. Side By Side With Fountains, Hustler, Etc. The Ride Was Much Better In The Donzi. I Think It Is The 9'3" Beam. It Is Very Heavy But Probably Gives Up A Little Top End As A Result. I Encourage You To Try A 38 Daytona In Some Big Conditions. Hammer

I RODE IN A 05 TOP GUN DON'T GET ME WRONG THE BOAT IS NICE BUT OUTER LIMITS HAS A MUCH BETTER RIDE.

Only a Fountain owner would park His boat like that at the dock...

38 Scarab hands down.
Handles the rough water like nothing else and still the best looking boat

I was just in an 04 LipShip last weekend in 3-4's and could not believe how well it handled. You need to come out and run a Gun in BIG water. You'll see. I've only been in one Outterlimits (a 37). I still stick with my theory when it comes to speed/handling/big water....With lesser weight to gain speed you are going to loose ride quality in big water.

that's been done plenty of times and the Fountain won. Not knocking you boat because I like them BUT a 42 Fountain is the best hull Fountain has and you would be surpised with it in the rough.
