Thats what i was thinking. There isn't a 27' boat in the world that is comfortable in real 4-6' seas. No matter what design, how heavy, or how well made, it just isn't long enough for a smooth ride in 4-6 footers.

Anyone who tells you different doesn't know what actual 4-6' seas look like.

Overbuilt? Have they changed their construction methods significantly over the last couple of years?

When they had that godawful "Rock the Boat" show on OLN about Ultra, it looked to me like they were slapped together out of plywood and drywall screws.

HAHA.... I asked them about that and they told me most of that stuff was staged. Thats why they don't have the TV show from what I understand. The producers wanted drama......which meant showing problems with production and staging drama scenes. The manufacturer just wanted them to show how good of a boat they were building. Looking back on it - I believe him.

28 Pantera
28 Active Thunder (27ft something)

I am told both handle true 4-6ft waves. My 24 python handled 2-3ft waves. Waves are measured differently in different areas. I measure from the hole to the crest.

Told, shmold... when i'm out in my 40ft SF in 4's doing 22knts, i'd like to see someone blow by at 50-60.
Most guys outta my inlet to the Atlantic tremble at 6ft on their way out... it flattens afterwards.
They all turn back before the entrance bouy.
But this is another story...
back to ULTRA.

i was in the Coast guard for 7 years on a dozen different life boats and to this day I still cant tell you the correct way to measure waves. Most in land lakes from what i rember from class can only generate about a 4' max wave due to depth and size. however certain canyon style lakes and large lakes can reach up to about 6' max but only for a short time and in certain areas. This doesnt take in the great lakes or areas like that.

here is little site that gives the way to figure out how deep of waves you are in.

Yeah tv can be a mess however we did do the boats for "fear factor and a Monster Garage" We have a total of about 3 new boats coming out real soon 1 V and 2 cats. When it comes to doing a show on reality TV only belive about 10% of it alot of the stuff you dont see is all about making the viewer stay tuned in.

Living in SD I never put my boats in the salt so being a lake bum is all we do. At first we looked at a 28 V seeing how we thought maybe about going in the salt but then rode the cat and were hooked.
