Didn't the 24 Sonic come from the 24 Donzi.The old Donzi Spirit was a sharp boat.

Isn't a 24 Fountain really a 20 foot Allison?

i dont know how it will handle the rough, but the new 21 sutphen looks sweet. i read on here somewhere high 60's-low 70's with sbc power and mid 80's with bbc power. sutphens usually handle rough seas well

I'll put my 25 Switzer in rough water with anything mentioned here.Bob Switzer built his first boat in 1946 and im thinking that by the time he built mine,he had his **** together. 75 mph in 3-5s all day with no real banging but she will roll side to side and trough riding can freak out passengers. I hear good things about everything from Active Thunder.

OK, so I am a tad biased myself. After Progression, I like Active Thunder and Laveycraft.

My first boat was a 22 Checkmate with a 454 which I thought was pretty bad azz until until I got smoked by a 22 Donzi in 3 footers. I was jumping around like a yo yo and that Donzi looked flat as can be going by.
