I also talked to a guy at a pokerrun who had an older AT, he claimed it porpoised at the same speeds also......that's the only reason I asked! currently I'm looking at #1 33PP's #2 31Sonics #3 32 AT's so I'm trying to soak up as much knowledge on each one as possible.............Thanks for the replies...........
What kind of props are they running?

3/4/5 blades?
In/Out rotation?
Bravo/Hydro/Other?

I'd be interested! but I'm having a difficult time getting rid of mine and won't put myself into the position where I have two....

When I saw them 3 years ago at the Miami Boat Show, the Bajas had better build quality.

My 3 yo daughter likes when I add a "happy face" to my posts. So here it is:

Have had 3 42 Sonics and would buy another Sonic in a heartbeat. What a great idea!

How does the cabin on the 31 Sonic compare size wise to a 32 AT? How about a Sunsation 32SS? these are the only comparable boats I've spent alot of time on.....

They are all layed out similar.
V-beth in the front.
U-shaped couch on the Sun and AT.
Opposing couches on the Sonic.
The 32SS Sunsation and the 31SS Sonic both have separate/built heads.
Depending on the (older) 32AT, it may/may not.
The (newer) 33AT has a built in separate head as well, with a floor drain shower.
Biggest advantage to the 31SS Sonic is that most of them have a built in settee-conversion that slips under the V-berth, and pulls out to turn the opposing couches into a bed. This does eliminate your under the V-berth storage though.

The AT is going to be the bigger boat... either the 32AT or the 33AT. Both the Sunsation and the Sonic have integrated swim platforms counted in their overall lengths.
