Default Skater vs Gladiator

Which boat will have a better ride in the ruff stuff. Say a 3-4 ft confused sea with cruiser wakes every now and then. I know how our Gladiator handles but my dad has always wanted a cat. The boat would be a 32 Skater with bravos. Also for you Skater guys how would the drives hold up.

Thank You

Number 6's make the real deal.
Im a cat guy so I would go for the skater. I drove Bobs Gladiater and checked yours out at the Algonquin..very nice ride.
The AMT is offically going up for sale shortly and if you want to get the insurance experience, an outboard cat might be worth a look.
It was nice meeting you and your dad.
Good luck with your choice.

The Skater won't like the bravo's. With the very high X dimention, they fail quickly.
