No, I have had a lot of fun in Velocitys. The choice was Sonic31 or a Velocity 32.

Again I would rather run a pad bottom than a round bottom.

He was born with a kidney belt in place. You are comparing two diffrent types of bottoms, one is for speed, and one is for comfort in rough water. Best anwser is you take both for a ride and then choose. I'm partial to sonic. I'm looking for ride.

Velocity = speed
Sonic = Rough water ability, bigger cabin

Depends whats most important to you. The velocity takes a little more skill to drive (which can be fun, if the wife and kids are tolerant). The Sonic is very safe and forgiving.
I boat on Lake Ontario, Sonic takes my vote.

I am willing to look at other manufacturers but I really like the hull design of the Sonic 31. The reason I am asking is I found 320 Velocity with only 50 hours on it and a brand new tri-axle trailer for around $50,000. Seems like a good deal. As far as the speed vs comfort factor as long as it pushes 75mph I would be happy.

Sonic's seem to be getting more votes which is what I figured. I guess I will just have to keep searching for that 31 Sonic in price range.

What year is the boat....the price sounds right.....be sure to get a survey done before you purchase.

Here is a 32 Active Thunder that should get you where you want to be. It kinda looks like a Sonic J/J guys

Sonic for the ride in the rough, plus the cabin in the sonic can't be beat. I had an older sonic, it was a wave crusher.
