You want all the weight you can get in something like that.....that's why they built Apaches like brick chit houses! I wouldn't be caught dead in one of these new potato chip boats...

Lighter is faster, heavier is smoother as a rule of thumb.

You compare....I dont think the Concept can take the Yami's and they would have to get recertified for the extra power.

I thought we were talking about Concepts and Yammies...

Anyway, just saying i'd rather have a heavier boat with a good bottom for a better ride. It may be slower but my passengers would thank me.

Everything i'm looking at seems to be too "beamy" and gets away from the performance I want . A 39 / 40 Concept with an 8' 6" beam woulld be the ticket
Does anyone know anything about Solid Powerboats? They make a decent looking 40 center console.

If you paid attention to the thread tkf chicago has been comparing both for a while along with a couple of other makes.

The bracket/swim platform integrated into the hull design and layup is the strongest. The wider beam (9 ft plus) is great for a stable ride. You trade speed for sea worthy. It won't fit through the gate on the side of the house. I would probably consider a 32ft Carrera. How wide is one on the trailer?
