Default if looking for a set down Opinions please

Just thinking out loud.. I want to go back to a set down style boat.
Pick one with 525s & Keep in mind a resale stand point. & the Skater, Ol will have a small cabin.

Skater has only made one sit down pleasure boat, Outerlimits has only made 5 or so 39 GTX's, Fountain has only made 12 or so Poker Runs so it's hard to tell between those. Now Donzi has made quite a few 38 ZRC's maybe 40 or so, I could get an accurate number if needed. It's hard to compare those four, so it would mostly be based on brand name there for I would have to go with Outerlimits or Donzi.

Jeff,rumor has it Donzi is putting 1/4 canopies on for 2007.Maybe we can get a deal on 2!!That boat with canopies would be killer,I hope it still has a cabin though.

42 poker run fountains supposedly blow drives like crazy no cabin,39 gtx how do they ride anybody??No real cabin,gladiator no cabin,donzi zrc great ride no cabin.resale without a cabin is tough,unless it has killer paint!

keeping the nor-tech? that is a sit-down... i am also thinking out-loud... i really like the looks of the donzi, but your budget allows for more it seems... which are you leaning towards and why??

With 525's the Fountain will be the fastest if that is important to you.

IM thinking Skater with full wrap windshield & the tail dragger rear like the skater 30 prototype.. I already had a zrc nice but no cabin no resale, the 42 Fountain has the same bottom as all 42s lightings? I hear conflicting stories about the ride of the gtx just hear say though. please vote!
