Default Doug Wright 32

I have a friend looking to get into a 32. He has had a couple of west coast cats but asked me how the 32 would handle compared to my boat, since he has ridden with me. I told him I had no idea. Anyone had seat time in some of the DW outboard boats, and how does it compare to a 40 Skater?

Is he looking for an outboard or I/O version?
A 40 Skater is a tough comparison, a 32 Skater would make a better this or that.

Tell your friend to pick up September edition of Hot Boat Magazine. There is a four page write up on the Doug Wright boats.
I know the 32 outboard has been kicking ass on SBI Circuit.
My husband wants to trade his boat for a DW Inboard.
They are making inboards available in different sizes.
Definately worth a look at. Similar to MTI design.

Grants Cusyom Rigging just finished one up with Bravos and 525s. Call Grant and he can explain to you why it was a 9.9 on the scale 1 to 10. 35 pitch Bravo with a 3.5 gear ratio on the limiters, you do the math. The MPH and how the boat handles was outstanding as well as the time it took to get there. If your gonna have one done, looks to me Grants the go to guy. It's nice to see Doug and Grant took the doubt out of people wondering if the 32 with inboards will work.

You have seen it, and if your buddie is even considering the one in the classifieds, through SC performance do it quick. We have someone intrested looking at it on Friday and if he doesn't buy it I'm finishing it and the price will be up at least 75k.

Keep me posted, I was w/ Scott Shogren today but out of respect for Reggie we didn't discuss your boat any. I'm still interested but sounds like you've decided to finish it.
