Default Compairison 30' Spectre to 30' Motion

Looking for opinions on the pro's and con's between the two Brands. Each would be powered in the same configuration Twin 300's.

I think they are almost identical, now sure when they stopped making the motion.

The back seat is probably different, I had mine permantly attached.

They look almost identical, only diff I can tell is the back seat, mine would lift up, the whole thing. Weighed a ton, so I had it mounted, now it looks just like the spectre.

I have a friend that's had several 30 motions and also 2 35 motions and a 40 skater. Hes tried different set ups with the 30 and ran the best with 3x300x's...He helped when the converted my boat from race to pleasure and set the boat up. He stated to me as he has been in my boat plenty times that my boat ran harder than any of the 30 motions he had (with the same power,3 with same power) as he tried raising the engines set back different props ex...... He also told me that because of the tunnel design the spectre didn't pound as hard in the rough and ran faster......that's all the info I have as I would take his word for it because he is very knowledgeable...He's building a 35 motion that just waiting for one motor to be finished that the tunnel was cut out and bigger that a 39 mti........looks like a MTI/Skater from the front...
