i owned a 98 30 spectre with 2003 300x's spinning 15x32 3 blades. boat was simply amazing. i put in XS of 150 hrs on this package. where i boat is usually 1-2 ft slop with the occasional 3's in the mix !! when i first got the boat i had the same issue with the slight porpoise. its common on smaller outboard cats. as a matter of fact i personally know of 2 32 skaters that if not trimmed properely DO THE SAME THING !! as you accelerate and the boats on plane, slightly trim her up until the porpose stops. if that doesnt work you may have to play with CG (center of gravity) and or engine height. I WOULD AND WILL BUY ANOTHER 30 SPECTRE without a doubt

I kept mine about 3 months and absolutly hated it. The Motion on the other hand, never porposied. I think the ride was more solid. It didn't have the "hollow sound" when landing off of a big wave. The spectre always sounted like it was going to fall apart. I would hands down recommend the Motion.
you didnt know how to drive mine doesnt do that

You maybe right. Maybe you can give me some lessons, as long as you promise not to go to fast!!
Infact, maybe we can trade! You teach me how to drive a cat, I can teach you punctuation!
