I have had the pleasure of doing some boating up on Erie now for the last two years and there is a reason why Cigarette and Apache rule up there.

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

Nothing against AT, but that is expensive for a 17 year old boat.

Both good boats. Get a sea trial in both and then decide.

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.
Have to agree with this, except I don't boat on Lake Ontario. We boat on the Chesapeake Bay and tributaries.

Well, if you want comfort and wave crushing capabilities, try looking at a Cig. Sorry, but there's no way you will be able to find one 1997 or newer in the 50K range, but all Cigs hold value well and are made to last.

If you want 75+ mph and a boat not afraid to run anywhere, take a look at a Cig Bullet. This one looks like a nice value.

Of course, I'm partial

Only becuase he stated what his budget was and, as you can see, you almost have to get a 20 year old AT to get it that cheap!

(don't shoot at me, please. Brian's seriously under the weather and I am just covering for his smart-azz)

I like the Velocity ride better.
I drove one and I will never take one hand off the wheel again,or hit a wave from the side Yikes!! The boat is fast but it hops like a rabbit in heat.
