Seriously, on the Chicago Poker Run, which was the sickest water that I have ever been in... I ran the boat conservatively. I had my 66 year old Dad aboard, and two other guests. I could have trimmed the boat out more, and lifted the bow, but I did not want any major air. I towed 1600 miles roundtrip for the Chicago Poker Run. I didn't make the trip to stay on the trailer, but also did not make the trip to destroy anything. I never once touched the trim tabs. I kept the drives at exactly straight neutral. I normally run them trimmed up 3.5 ticks from neutral.

I could not ask for more in a boat. I am even VERY happy with my stock/warrantied 496HO power package.
Yeah, I got to say after watching the video of the run at the dinner...your 37 ran about the best I've seen on there other than my 42.
Anyhow, I'm starting to hate threads like these lately.

No it is all active thunder

It was first badged as a Chief during the Chief attempt at partnering with Active (didn't work) I sold that boat to current owner who was to be a dealer
When Chief screwed the pooch the boat was re badged as active thunder (was always and Active anyway)

The boat is incredible and there is a reason that Pat is gearing thing up to a larger level

The Active is a SUPER boat and i have driven both the 28 and 37 and would never ever be concerned about the handling
It is amazing

OL make a great boat as well
i just have never driven one to comment on its handling

By the way the new slogan for Chief is
"You seen one you have seen them all "

Let Pat and crew explain why the single step works it is an interesting concept and makes good sence

Damn that boat flies level

If i had a choice between the two it would be a Outerlimits. Much bigger boat, larger cabin.

The poster was expressing an opinion but many people are taking it personally. What about some reasonable discussion about the subject without attacking the poster? Also, what does a persons number of posts have to do with their level of experience or knowledge? If I had 10,000 post's would that make me a genius or just somebody with too much time on my hands?

Animalhouse, what are your thoughts on multiple steps vs single steps?
