Post Baja Vs. Scarab Vs. Vindicator

Thanks all, first off for all your opinions and comments on the previous post. I havent quite narrowed it down to just these, but can someone explain the quality, ride, and performance difference between these three aforementioned boats?
thanks

ps- just looking for your two cents

Go with the Baja or the Scarab. The VIP isn't in the same league. The ride, prformance and quality of both will be similar and both are built as "performance" boats. My best sugestion would be to go test and crawl around in a lot of boats before you buy and find out exactly what you like. There are also a LOT of other choices. I would add Powerquest and Sunsation to your list to check out at the minimum.

If I was going to choose between those 2 I would go with Baja. The Scabs just dont do anything for me. I'm not saying they are bad boats or anything, I just don't care for how they look (their lines and interior) Both put some chitty colors on and in their boats through the 90's so if you are looking for a used boat, good luck
Thats my .02

i like the scarabs color better than the baja colors, but he is righ both offered pretty whack colors in the 90s. A nice older scarb can be had for a pretty decent price. If you do soem updating to the older scarab they look pretty sweet. Bajas are a dime a dozen. Scarabs have some history (not like cigs or magnums but they have some)

I do indeed have a scarab, so i am a little biased, but compared to allthe older bajas i've seen the scarab look better. Bajas always looked liek they were bread from express cruiser. No offense to the baja boys they just seem less streamlined.

I say go with the Scarab.

I have owned both of them!!

Know from experience. I admit the Baja has come a long way the last few years, but you can't beat the resale or the ride!

Just my .02 cents!!!

Their both nice boats, both have ups and downs,I am assuming you are looking at 26'-28' if so you will need more than a 502 mag to get you to 70's like you said you wanted earlier. WILL

SO tell me how a Donzi and a Powerquest compare to a Baja and Scarab? Which boats between these 4, which models i mean, have the faster hull? Do any of these handle better over the other in rough water?
